Kirk Martin, London
Why are our train operating companies now owned by bus companies and French and German state railways – not our Government?
Dennis Lane, Middlesbrough
Not tomorrow – now.
Gail Bishop, Caterham
Privatisation – lining shareholder’s pockets since 1995.
Margaret Kerr, Wirral
Take back our railways. They’re ours…
Ian McCall, Llanidloes
The current service is expensive, unfriendly and wasteful.
Caroline Schmutz, London
For an affordable and integrated public transport network.
Lynne Finn, London
British Rail should never have been privatised in the first place. Let’s get it back and then set to getting the Royal Mail back too.
Paul Clark, Southampton
Privatisation has failed. Any monopolistic system with so many interfaces and profit being creamed off the top is just illogical.
Gillian Morgan, Doncaster
Rail transport and its infrastructure should be nationally-owned and run in a cost-effective way, not making profit for shareholders.
Debbie Richens, London
I’m fed up with profits going before passenger service and think the railways should be renationalised.
Mary Abbott, Portsmouth
The rail system in the UK is one of the worst in the world. It’s very expensive, never on time and with price rises above inflation year after year. It has got to stop.
Nicholas Figgis, London
Private railways are an expensive scam.
Anthony Farrell, London
Keep up the good work.
Rowan Crawshaw, Caernarfon
I hate Virgin and First.
Richard King, Bristol
This privatisation experiment has failed. The East Coast Line ran at a vast profit when in government hands but not when previously run privately. It’s time for British Rail.
Mark Parkes, Birmingham
There is enough evidence that re-nationalising the railways would work, so stop the waste of re-franchising our railways.
Graham Potter, Stevenage
This current rail system has gone to pot and is very expensive. Bring back BR now.
Mark Tibbutt, Worcester
It must happen now.
Cliff Askey, London
It’s disgusting that it costs more to travel by train than plane than in nearly every other country in the world, while getting such poor service.
Robert Jump, Colne
The infrastructure is owned by the government and the promised private investment has failed to materialise. Competition has failed to keep prices down.
Alan Freeman, Leeds
We only have the current situation because of the Thatcherite obsession with private enterprise for all things.
Ned Lane-Barry, Leeds
Bring back British Rail.
Stephen Millership, Stockport
It’s great that we finally have a forum to help put an end to this crazy state of affairs that is rail privatisation.
Liz O’Brien, London
Stop privatising the railways.
Ethan Radford, Nottingham
Considering the public already subsidises the rail network 3-4 billion a year, yet fares continue to rise. The entire rail network should be standardised to public good.
Rebecca Roseff, Colwall
The highest fares in Europe, and the money goes to profit not improvements. Re-nationalise now.
Carole Hadley, Cornwall
Bring the rail system back to the people. Make it fairly priced so that low income people can travel too. Ban HS2 and concentrate on the people that matter.
Eileen Dale, York
Public transport is a public service and should be run as such, not for profit.
Keith Bryant, Sandown
Let’s bring to an end the privatised fiasco that provides the worst service for the highest fares in Europe.
Terence Broad, London
