Current events. Enough said.
Susan Pearce, Oldham
Public utilities for the public. Not massive profits for foreign companies while we freeze.
Stella Haynes, Market Harborough
I want to own what belongs to me, and what has been stolen from me.
Adrian Potts, Leicester
Profiteering on this scale should be illegal. It’s the unacceptable face of capitalism and must be stopped.
The promise that privatisation would bring lower prices and a better service is as false with rail as with water, energy and soon the post.
David Farmer, Yorkshire
No profit should be taken from providing people with essential services.
Kathleen Purves, South Shields
I have worked all my life and receive no benefits. At 64, I am sitting at home wearing three sweaters as I type this. Fuel supplies should never have been privatised.
Dave Waite, Lincoln
Because energy is too important to be left to the spivs.
Paul Mclean, Leeds
Energy supplies and infrastructure are produced by the people. They should be owned by the people.
Professor Okullu-Ayor Vincent, Kampala, Uganda
Our broad intervention strategies are: 1. Poverty eradication. 2. Food security and nutrition. 3. Health and population dynamics. 4. Education. 5. Gender Equality.
Sam Roberts, Liverpool
Stop extortionate bills. Also stop extortionate estimates that neither reflect the consumption of energy or make clear that they are only estimates.
Patricia Borlenghi, Manningtree
Privatisation instead of state monopoly was meant to lead to competition and lower prices for consumers. This hasn’t happened and rich bosses make even more profit.
Jeremy Hoyte, Oswestry
Profits from utility, bus and rail companies should be ploughed back into infrastructure, not shareholders” pockets.
Mary Hodges, Newport, Isle of Wight
Please take note of this petition.
John Howe, Rotherham
End this disastrous privatisation.
Peter Sharpe, Newcastle-upon-Tyne
How can something so vital for human life be used to make a few richer?
Brian Bailey, Manchester
Why do we need to be held to ransom by the power companies? Price increases mean more shareholder dividends. Return them to public ownership.
Karen Nadin, Newark
Vote these Tory swine out of office as soon as possible.
Leah Etteridge, Chatham
Power for the people.
Simon Silvie, Barrow-in-Furness
Restore security and sovereignty by restoring energy, utilities and transport to public ownership.
William Ryan, Manchester
The increases over the last few years show that this government is only interested in big business as usual. Disgraceful.
Peter Canham, Hitchin
Let us return to a fair sharing of wealth and freedom.
Stuart Wooldridge, Pontefract
Is it a service for the people to keep warm this winter or is it a business to make the profits bigger. If everyone stopped payment for one month they’d fail big time.
Energy should never have been privatised. We want it back.
John Brady, Doncaster
Keep railways in public ownership – not producing profits to line a few pockets!
Colin Anderson, Dunstable
The energy companies are ripping us off in order to make fat profits. This is wrong.
Daniel Rolles, Dartford
Why don’t they learn?
Judith Maizels, Bushey
It is immoral for individual and corporate fat cats to profit so obscenely from peoples’ need simply to stay warm. All energy companies should be renationalised now.
Malcolm Duckworth, Preston
If we are all in this together then why aren’t the profits to shareholders falling?
Bernie Lally, Northampton
Power to the many in the hands of the many.
