Diane Hibbert, Rainworth
I hate being held to ransom.
Dennis Exley, Barnsley
Big business has had too much power for too long. Its time to return it back to the people.
John Truelove, Weston-super-Mare
All utilities and public transport should be in state ownership.
Stephen Munton, Birmingham
Please return the gas and electricity industry to the same great institution which it used to be.
Alan Bettridge, London
Don’t they think we pay enough? The government gave the nurses 1% and then the power companies put their prices up by 10%.
Gareth Brown, Rugby
Services by the people for the people. Bring the energy and water companies back into public ownership.
Tom Warnett, Slough
A publicly owned energy provider will show up the lie that competition has been good for consumers, just as East Coast has on the railways.
S Leach, Essex
George Hill, Corby
The time is right to take back the industries into public hands for benefit of the public.
Brian Hoey, Houghton-le-Spring
Light and heat are basic human needs and profits should not be made from their provision.
Paul Burgess, Torquay
Time to draw the line in the sand methinks.
Jack Grout, Huddersfield
Electricity and gas are now a vital part of our everyday lives. It is morally wrong to profit from something the people are so dependant on.
Tom Conway, Derby
As Midnight said: The time has come. A fact’s a fact – It belongs to them. Let’s give it back.
Steve Jarvis, Westbury
It’s time we stopped treating our neighbours as competitors, and for politicians playing the electorate off against each other. Let’s come together for the common good.
Penny Lomas, Leeds
When a company is nationalised, any profits can come back to the people.
Simon Silvie, Barrow-in-Furness
Restore security and sovereignty by restoring energy, utilities and transport to public ownership.
Alex Burnell, Ipswich
Bring the power back to the people.
Jez Curnow, Edinburgh
People would be happier paying tax if the essential services were to be or stay nationalised.
Richard Desjardins, Ashby de la Zouch
If you see Sid, tell him we messed it up.
Anthony Peter, Todmorden
Utilities are too important to the public to be run at their expense for private profit.
Alexander Scott, Ardrossan
Energy supply and distribution requires long term and nationwide co-ordination. Privatisation gives no reason to look to the future when a quick buck can be made now.
Richard Robinson, Scarborough
Energy for the public, not for profit! Besides, if it makes a profit, surely this would be better invested in the country than in shareholders pockets.
John Warburton, Treuddyn
All utilities should belong to the people, not profit-making private companies.
John Howe, Rotherham
End this disastrous privatisation.
Moira Smith, Kent
Keep up the good work. We are on an electric key meter. Not many companies do it so it makes it hard to change.
Sean Barlow, Chester
Putting food on the table is hard enough without worrying about the cost of cooking it.
Karshan Moodley, London
This is our right; We have paid ten-fold for the energy infrastructure. It is time it is returned to its rightful owners – the people of Britain.
Michael Gorbold, Cheshunt
The sooner the energy companies are re-nationalised the better it will be for the customers.
Pete Heskett, London
Privatisation equals prices up, service down, profits to investment bankers.
