Kevin Guyatt, Stockport
Can we trust politicians to run anything? Heaven help us.
Dorothy Nelson, St Austell
It is worth trying, despite the hopelessness we all feel on these issues. See recent reports on how Iceland has resisted the power of banks and multinational corporations.
George Davies, Darwen
Everyone needs energy and at a cost that protects and enhances life, rather than simply unearned dividend payments which are used to make rich people even richer.
Peter Wooldridge, Pontefract
I used to work in the power generation industry when it was privatised by the Tory government and we said then it would not work. How right we were.
Hywel Morgan, London
It should never have been privatised in the first place.
Rob Seed, Worcester
I support the dream but has anyone any idea of the cost of re-nationalising?
Peter Swindells, Wolverhampton
The power companies were stolen from the people. Repossess them immediately.
Simon Roberts, London
This is very important – do not ignore the voices of your people.
John Payne, London
Another public asset stolen from the people.
Sue Basker, Derby
At the moment energy companies can print money. The Government is powerless to stop them.
David Cunliffe, St Helens
Certain commodities should be owned by the people, for the people. Energy, public transport, water.
Valerie Bartleet, Wolverhampton
Not everyone has the ability to access information on cheaper deals. The result is, as in so many other areas, that those least able to afford it end up paying most.
Daniel Rolles, Dartford
Why don’t they learn?
Simon Larn, Redhill
Today’s report on the great energy rip-off sums it up really; Switch continually or get overcharged. We are not the idiots they take us for.
John Tyrrell, Birmingham
All have the right to have access to essentials for life, which includes an energy supply, regardless of ability to pay.
David Britten, Farnham
Re-nationalisation is the only answer.
Hazel Willmer, Barnsley
Let’s get back to how it was – a more fair society.
Dave Waite, Lincoln
Because energy is too important to be left to the spivs.
John Lee, Taunton
For profit’ is always likely to place profit before social considerations.
Jennifer Andrew, Oxford
It’s crazy. We have the skills and the unemployed so we should use them.
John Robinson, Lincoln
More power to your elbow. Something needs to be done to stop this profiteering on something that people rely on.
Robert Gordon, Nottingham
It is time we all said enough is enough. Thank you for organising this petition.
Chris Speedy, Leeds
It’s just common sense to run basic essentials in the public sphere and for the public good.
Terry Down, Milton Keynes
Services for the people, not private profit.
Philip Todd, Stokesley
Power back to the people in a not-for-profit company.
Bill Smickersgill, Leeds
Let’s get this job done.
Mike Seaman, Uxbridge
Utilities need to return to public ownership. We’re being ripped off.
Maggie Lewis, Waltham on the Wolds
I prefer the country’s energy supply in the hands of politicians and not capitalists, but the margin is very slight.
Bryan Burrow, Kendal
No need to feed the greed. Plant the seed.
