John Hudghton, Buxton
Let private investment take the risk for HS2 and use the capital to re-create a national energy network.
Mike Bird, Llandudno
Clearly nothing fundamental to life should be owned for profit.
Eric Firth, Dewsbury
I’m 100% behind you.
Eileen Watts, Swansea
This government is selling UK down the river good and proper. I have to work two days to pay for one week’s energy and I’m not wallowing in centrally heated bliss.
Jane Lowry, Falmouth
The huge growth in profit taken by the Big Six over the last four years – from
Dilys Hadley, Exmouth
This should never have been privatised.
Kathleen Parker, Manchester
If this industry had not been privatised by the Thatcher regime, think how much revenue it would be generating for the State.
John Tilley, Kingston upon Thames
Public ownership can be local and democratic. It does not have to be 1940s style state bureaucracy.
Toby Ray, London
Power is too important to be left to private business.
Neville Akroyd, Launceston
All infrastructure should be in public control – power and water, transport and telecommunications.
Andy Wilkinson, Norwich
Let’s get the utilities out of the hands of these greedy bastards. They should belong to the community at large.
John Exon, Harrogate
Bring back the CEGB. They would have solved the reduction of CO2 problem, got nuclear generation, got safe generation margins etc.
Jonathan Evans, Norwich
The privatisation of utilities and other national assets has been 30 years of failure and corruption. It should be stopped.
Chris Dooks, Ayr
This is a long overdue idea.
Wilfred John Barker, Wigton
Re-nationalise and invest profits instead of paying out to shareholders.
Jes Fernie, Colchester
Give us back our power.
Robert McArdle, Coventry
Full nationalisation of all the utilities is the only way to end the rip-off.
Jim Peters, Denham
Why do we need the money-grabbing middle men? Give us back our energy industry and plough the profits back into the infrastructure, not into the pockets of shareholders.
Polly Moyer, Bristol
I have photo-voltaics and have done a lot to make my home energy efficient. It would be good if the government allowed us to do the same with national energy provision.
Neil Cameron, Sheffield
Profiteering based on the sale of a commodity which is essential to life and basic human comfort is outrageous. Nationalisation would end this.
Rob Seed, Worcester
I support the dream but has anyone any idea of the cost of re-nationalising?
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.
Brian Smith, Stockton Brook
We need affordable, sustainable, clean energy, for the common good, not private profit.
Tom Gwynnette, Rotherham
It should be back under one ownership, like it used to be. British gas is now owned by the French.
Common sense over greed, please.
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.
Simon Williams, Sutton
Re-nationalise it all. It should all be owned by and run for all the people – not thieves and shareholders.
Jimmy Murray, London
People should not have to choose heating over eating.
Norman Wall, Wallsend
Get back to sanity.
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.
