Emma Kraus, Bracknell
Come on, let’s join the Spirit of ’45.
Damon Newton-Goode, Portsmouth
Take the railways back from the greedy corporates who profit while we suffer every day.
Colin Crowther, Swindon
Re-nationalise BR and whilst you are at it, do the same for the utilities companies.
Access to decent affordable transport for all will contribute towards levelling inequality and support collaboration, productivity and a growing economy.
Why is it considered reasonable for a private train company with a monopoly to fleece its customers in order to fund investment to its infrastructure?
Shela Close, Newcastle-upon-Tyne
You know it’s the right thing to do. People not profit. Let us be proud of something as important and vital as our rail network.
James Forber, Warrington
End this madness! Make train prices fair.
Kevin Gaylard, New Milton
Britain deserves better than the total shambles that privatisation was always going to be. Money for fat cats doesn’t provide a decent railway.
David Williams, Stamford
It couldn’t be worse than it is now. Where are the bigger trains we were promised 30 years ago? It’s still horrible on our line.
Please check your records as I may have already signed this petition.
James McArdle, Brighton
Living in Brighton, I have seen first-hand how ridiculously terrible and increasingly expensive beyond belief the rail networks have got in Britain.
John Robertson, Reigate
Bring back British Rail.
Steven Partington, Bolton
May it be.
Daniel Collins, Brentwood
It’s time to stop the train operating companies running the rail network into the ground.
Bill Holland, Manchester
Subsidise public transport, tax fuel.
Matt Chadwick, Nottingham
I agree 100%. Public services, not profits.
John Salisbury, Norwich
I’m tired of seeing money wasted on pointless franchising and the commercial marooning of services off the core network, like East Anglia.
William Carter, Wigton
Trains are always late and stupidly expensive. This has to change.
Dorothy Nelson, St Austell
Re-instate simple fare structures, with one price wherever you buy. The thought of a public service run for the public should not be a revolutionary concept.
Michael Church, Dewsbury
Money is being wasted paying dividends to shareholders rather than being invested in the infrastructure.
Benjamin Denton-Cardew, Ipswich
Aside from GNER, Anglia Railways and Chiltern, privatisation has done nothing for the discerning passenger.
Toby Fenwick, London
Quasi-competition has driven subsidy to unheard of heights and reduced efficiency. A single, publicly-owned and -operated railway is the best way forward.
Richard Connell, Leeds
Railways should be run for public benefit rather than private profit. The current fragmented and micro-managed network can never achieve this, and needs re-integration.
Ian Greenhalgh, Edinburgh
I’m speechless with anger.
Anne Hayes, Chesterfield
Hiking prices up is wrong and especially in view of the fiasco at Kings Cross Station this year. What a mess.
Graham Bunting, Northampton
Privatisation of the railways has been a disaster. Bring back British Rail!
Robin Holden, Chipping Norton
Better a public than a private monopoly.
Nicholas Eve, Shefford
We need a nationalised rail service back for the good of the country.
Barrie Blayney, Leeds
I believe that all utilities should be in public ownership and not run for the profit of shareholders, other than the British public
Andrew Kirkham, Knaresborough
The fiasco over the West Coast line says it all.
