Vote for an End to Public Service Privatisations

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

  • Railfuture

Independent campaign for a better passenger and freight rail network.

  • Power for the People
