Public utilities should never be in private hands. Simple.
Peter Burns, Holyhead
Power to the people to eradicate poverty caused by big power companies and big businesses making huge profits of millions of pounds by selling energy at high prices.
Tom Rickman, Penzance
Give us our power back and allow us the means to produce our own energy on a community basis without the political constraints of large corporations.
Jenny Rust, Bath
Sustainable, affordable and communal energy.
Anthony Peter, Todmorden
Utilities are too important to the public to be run at their expense for private profit.
Bill Hunter, Hartlepool
This is pure Conservative ideology that has driven this incorrect policy, which no other country of note agrees with.
Steven Robert Gill, Fareham
It’s about time this issue was brought to the fore.
Paul Beattie, Corby
Re-nationalise without delay. Privatisation has failed miserably.
Keith Davies, Pentre
Return our gas and electricity to public ownership now.
Martyn Wilson, Farnborough
I just want a reliable, fair, publicly-owned utility, not a never-ending cycle of chasing different suppliers to get good value.
John Wilson, Glasgow
Nationalisation without compensation. Give us back our utilities now.
Diane Tsavalos, Liverpool
The fact that the privatised energy companies can threaten the UK with blackouts has made the need for nationalisation more urgent.
Simon Roberts, London
This is very important – do not ignore the voices of your people.
Sue Stacey, Stockport
Bring back nationalised power for the people of Britain and stop these greedy giants lining their pockets.
Yvonne Mustapha, High Wycombe
I am so fed up with how the corporates and bankers pull the strings of the government. There are simple and cheap pollution-free solutions to the energy problems.
Susan Henderson, St Albans
Privatisation has proved not to be in the interests of the nation. Competition has not resulted in companies vying to please customers, but in a self-interested cartel.
Gareth Brown, Rugby
Services by the people for the people. Bring the energy and water companies back into public ownership.
Martin Findell, Nottingham
Our energy infrastructure is a vital national asset. It is too important to be left in private hands and run for private profit.
Jennifer Gorrod, Tayport
Return energy to public ownership.
Lennard James-Tall, Llanelli
More money for the rich and the poor suffer.
Michael Gorbold, Cheshunt
The sooner the energy companies are re-nationalised the better it will be for the customers.
Roger Jackson, York
This petition should highlight the need for more social responsibility to be shown by this selfish and one-eyed government.
Gary Brooke, Manchester
Utility companies are cash cows for foreign equity funds. Frankly, it’s mad.
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.
John Exon, Harrogate
Bring back the CEGB. They would have solved the reduction of CO2 problem, got nuclear generation, got safe generation margins etc.
Mark Jordan, Ripley, Surrey
The sooner this happens the better.
Paul Burgess, Torquay
Time to draw the line in the sand methinks.
Peter Treadwell, Melton Mowbray
People not profits.
Sara Hall, London
Life is too short.
Robert Gordon, Nottingham
It is time we all said enough is enough. Thank you for organising this petition.
