 From $600 million to $2.25BILLION. They are already charging people 
on their bills for the meters even though they aren't installed yet. 
How is that within any semblance of Fair Trading requirements? "Here, 
honey, pay for this device, and if the program manages to meet it's 
objectives, you just might see some benefit in about 4 years." This 
is in Victoria. I haven't seen it on my bill yet.

The world has gone mad. Or maybe it's just governments. I just heard 
this project described as the Myki of the electrical industry. Of 
course that was said by an opposition leader who has about as much 
cred in the community as George Bush.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
