Richard Smith, Devizes
I have been saying we should re-nationalise the industry for years.
Jean Holmes, Worksop
Utilities should always be in the hands of the people that use them. For these companies it is like writing a blank cheque.
Joan Harrison, St Albans
Let’s get rid of the shareholders.
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.
Lesley Downes, Exmouth
There needs to be a common policy, approach and pay structure which realistically focuses on the end consumer.
Michael Burnett, London
Trusting energy companies to run their businesses for the benefit of customers is naive. Privatisation means profits first and last.
Juliet Chard, London
Too many million-pound salaries for energy company CEOs while the elderly and others choose between heating and lighting and eating.
James Graham, Croydon
Energy for the public not profit.
John Hann, Newcastle-upon-Tyne
I’d rather subsidise my fellow citizens than a bunch of fat cats.
Marja Bonada, Oswestry
Lavern Wilson, Mansfield
We’ve had enough of prices so high and having to have a house that is cold.
Joyce McCarthy, Bradford
All the main utilities should be under public ownership. Rich individuals should not be able to profit from them.
Karen Nadin, Newark
Vote these Tory swine out of office as soon as possible.
Simon Silvie, Barrow-in-Furness
Restore security and sovereignty by restoring energy, utilities and transport to public ownership.
Lynne Richardson, Hucknall
Privatisation has not worked.
Abigail Wheeler, Cheltenham
I agree fully with your comments.
Chris Ford, London
I’m fed up with being milked to pay for energy bosses’ bonuses. After being caught price fixing too. It’s about time the profits were re-invested in the system.
Jack Carmenta, Leamington Spa
Government and corporations need to realise that they do not have the power. We, the people, do. It is the duty of us, the people, aware of this, to spread the message.
Terry Down, Milton Keynes
Services for the people, not private profit.
Re-nationalise energy and let’s have it work for the public once again and not the greedy shareholders and energy companies.
Antony Silson, Keighley
You know it makes sense.
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.
Ian Kane, Portsmouth
Water and power services should be run by national authorities. Extra money needed for investment could be borrowed at fixed rates. This petition really needs to go big.
Ken Cooke, St Austell
Give back something I used to own, which was sold without my permission.
Julian Smith, Dunfermline
The supply of a universal commodity, such as energy, should be run on a non-profit basis.
Peter Sharpe, Newcastle-upon-Tyne
How can something so vital for human life be used to make a few richer?
Mark Laidler, Doncaster
Big Six energy companies are a definite cartel. Let’s have a proper investigation into them. Ever since the utility companies were put in private hands prices have risen.
Stefan Wright, Huddersfield
I think it is wrong that services that are virtually human rights are there for the purpose of making money.
David John Briggs, Southend-on-Sea
Profit is not a dirty word – all businesses need it to survive, but what we have with the energy companies is pure unvarnished greed.
Pauline Hacker, Preston
This has ripped off the ordinary people long enough.
