I'd rather spend my money on the NBN than the stupid "smart" meter
that's been installed without consent of the consumer that does
NOTHING for us and has all the benefit for the power companies, and
gives them the ability to turn off my power, without notice, if there
is too high demand on the grid because people are actually using the
power they are supposed to be supplying.

sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
