Would you support renationalisation of energy, water, rail and more?
Since the 1980s the Government has privatised many essential services, often by floating previously state-owned companies.
Those arguing for privatisation often focus on increased efficiency due to competition. Those against that say firms do what’s best for their shareholders and not for consumers. It’s a complex argument, but we’re really most interested in testing public sentiment so are keeping it simple.
Please vote for the choice closest to your own opinion on whether you support renationalisation for each of the listed services.
