The General Election is an opportunity to vote on issues wider than BREXIT, such as the end of public services privatisations, such as the railways and the energy network.
Southern Rail and Thames Link have demonstrated the worst aspects of privatisation of the railways, but there are growing concerns about the companies across the country. And there is also concern about the behaviour of the privatised energy companies.
The support of re-nationalising grows, with campaigns such as:
- Bring Back British Rail
This is an alliance of disgruntled rail passengers and disheartened train employees, demanding a re-unified national rail network run for people not profit. It has a petition to sign on its website.
- Action for Rail. People Before Profit
Independent campaign for a better passenger and freight rail network.
- Regional Campaigns
These include Norfolk for Nationalisation of Rail. It first newsletter can be seen here.
- Power for the People
This campaign brings together citizens suffering from fuel poverty and those concerned about energy security and climate change. It is demanding a publicly-owned energy network run for people not profit.
