Energy is a public resource. Surely it makes sense that its production and distribution is managed for the public good, not massive profit for a tiny minority of people.
private companies are more concerned about profits for shareholders than providing a service. This is inevitable if they want to attract investors.

Its taken forty years for Thatcher's Privatisation policies to fall down. And it could have been a lot sooner, with the right type of Labour Party.
