Gordon Nash, Arlesey.
All energy, all transport and all water in this country should be as in most of the rest of the world – owned by its people.
Robin Sunderland, Harrogate
Simon Wragg, Brockenhurst
I’m fed up with being half an hour late every day. The Southern main line needs massive investment. SWT have made it clear they won’t do it. Maybe BR would.
Mark Westendorp, Lyme Regis
We are paying for it anyway so let’s have it back.
Peggy Clatworthy, Gloucester
I can hear my two great grandfathers, grandfather and great uncle (all dedicated railway men) turning in their graves – they took such pride in their work.
Mike Taylor, York
Given the funding it works. Why should shareholders cream off profits?
Ian Shaw, Brighton
Privatisation of the railways has completely failed the nation.
John Marskman, Manchester
Bring back British Rail. Privatisation isn’t working.
Terence Sythes, Milton Keynes
Privatisation seems to be the default position of Tory policy. The services are never better run, but at least the select few can benefit.
Stephen White, Darlington
The East Coast Line before privatisation was excellent. I would like it to return to those standards.
Daniel Church, Cambridge
Isaac Reid-Guest, Birmingham
Nationalisation is what the rail system needs.
Julie Wilkinson, Stockport
For the sake for of the environment, and because the railways should be a service not a money machine.
Jim Love, Middlesbrough
Bring it back.
Steve King, Royal Tunbridge Wells
We need to do something because soon Kent to Manchester will cost over
David Lockwood, Worcester
Rail privatisation has caused me huge problems over the past sixteen years, primarily because the companies refuse to co-operate with each other over problems.
Will Benton, Godalming
£4,116 for an annual season ticket to work – 20% of my income. What for? Slow trains, sitting on the floor and heated carriages in the summer. BBBR I say!
Phil Miller, Manchester
It’s impossible to get a seat on the train in the morning to work and they’re overpriced and dirty..
Paul Barrow, Brighton
After living in France and Italy and Germany and using the rail networks there, I fully support the re-nationalisation of our rail network. Our system is a farce.
Nicola Laing, Haywards Heath
Sack Southern and Claire Perry.
David Butcher, Carlisle
British Rail was safer. The rail system we have now is dangerous.
Ersan Hakki, London
Fare increases every year for an increasingly diminished and unreliable service. Privatised companies have had zero accountability for too long.
Iain Bowley, Northwich
Just the ticket.
You should never privatise public services.
Stephen Williams, Ashford, Kent
I wholeheartedly agree with your aims. Ex-British Rail employee, took voluntary redundancy in disgust after privatisation. RIP Bob Crow and John Green.
Andrew McKay, Downham Market
Transport should be easy, effective and as cheap as feasible. How else do you clear the roads of pollution and chaos?
Derek Richardson, South Queensferry
I agree with Jeremy Corbyn. British Rail.
Mike Domingue, Hexham
It would be great to also see improvements to rolling stock used on regional services like here on the Carlisle to Newcastle line.
Alexia Wright, Essex
Andy Ruffell, Ashford
If I want to travel to London (36 minutes away) It costs me £36. £1 per minute, that’s crazy.
