Thank-you for laying out your ideas - agree the railways were not privitised properly, but doubling of train journeys since privitisation in 1995 suggests something is better than the old BR.
Not sure what benefit nationalising the power companies would be as the cost is prohibitive and there is no evidence nationalised power would be cheaper without subsidies -destroying the benefit of nationalisation.

Agree with more house building - dislike rent controls as they are shown not to work around the world and prevent people moving - some better security of tenure could help people

an increase to the minimum wage would destroy the profitability of many companies, so those currently earning something would earn nothing - we live in a global economy and therefore must compete globally. It would also destry the employability of many people who's 'work' value is less then the new wage.
