Turnbull's Gizmo?

This tickled me in Lord Turnbull's H o L's speech.
He is looking for a Gizmo to connect up his incoming electricity meter(11p/unit) with his out-going meter(ostensibly from his own electricity generation kit) crediting him with 23p/unit.
Wicked as the grandchildren say-That's a much better idea than working.
I'll bet there's a spiv somewhere that's beaten him to it?

Re: Turnbull's Gizmo?

Edward, thanks for that. I'm ashamed to say I never noticed the obvious although I read through the script. What a guy! Brilliant.
