col, ted said he'd look into stopping smart meters. With $1 billion already wasted, I'm not sure it was viable really. Just face it, this was another Labor disaster. End of story.jason Wednesday 22 February, 2012 - 2:11 PM
smart meters should be stopped, it is plain to see they are a fire hazard, does someone have to die before Mr Baillieu relizes this, there is nothing wrong with the meters we have now.mark Wednesday 22 February, 2012 - 10:43 AM

The smart meters they are pushing onto people, after a single death or even incident, should of been stopped and put under full review.Unknown Wednesday 1 February, 2012 - 8:15 PM
