Petition calling for Gordon Brown to resign

We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to resign

Come on everyone. Do your bit for your country. Maybe if the whole country signs it... OK, so there's no chance of him actually quitting. Come the election they'll probably have to physically drag him, kicking and screaming, from number 10. But at least this might wipe the smug grin off his fat face for a few minutes. :o)

  • Pointless – this is the BBC’s equivalent of Have Your Say. They won’t actually use the comments for anything, it’s just to give you a vague feeling that you’ve aired your opinions and participated int eh democratic process.

    You haven’t. Those petitions are ignored by Westminster and ignored by the media.

  • Paul – these petitions might be ignored by Westminster, but the media won’t ignore this one. Most of the country would love to see Gordon Brown resign and people will sign this petition in their millions. Its a perfect news story and will be featured in every publication and on every TV channel.

    As usual, housepricecrash.co.uk is ahead of the curve – only a couple of hundred signatures was on it when it was posted here.

    @paul

    I agree it’s pointless from a “democratic process” point of view, and will have no impact whatsoever on the government. But these petitions are often reported in the mainstream press if they gather sufficient support.

    However I’m not really expecting the start of the revolution; I just saw it as a bit of Friday afternoon fun.

  • Pointless – what’s it proving? 17 million people voted against the government at the last election; even if this petition was to get 20 million signatures, do you really think it would achieve anything? Face it – just like John Major’s doomed government, this one will limp along until the last possible moment before it gets massacred next year. And unfortunately for us, they will spend the remainder of their time borrowing as much money as they can and throwing it at the banks and the housing market.

    I’m starting to think we’re in for shallow falls (c.5%) over the next 12 months before the real carnage starts in 2010, which means that sadly we’re stuck renting for a few more years.

  • Just realised I unwittingly copied Paul’s “pointless” opener. The power of suggestion.

  • @ Jonny Parker,
    You were right. They’ve just come in out of the sun and now the number is nearly 2,000! An extra 1,500 people. I didn’t get in as I’d already voted.

    The ones who came in from the sun were busy locking in their mortgages. The Halifax call centre was having a very busy time today. I think the enormity of Darling’s borrowing has begun to sink in !

  • Done – 3343 signatures now….

    …and importantly, the petition to introduce a £2000 car scrapage scheme only had 4000 signatures.

    http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/scrappagescheme/

    If the resignation petition gets above this it will provide good amunition for Cameron who has already compared scrapping a 10 year old banger fit for the scrapheap with Gordon and his cronies.

    Methinks this will go viral like the u-tube video of Dan Hannan. Never underestimate the power of the internet. All it takes is for you to sign-up and write a nice little email and send it to everyone in your address book. I did. It was IT and the telecoms revolution that enabled mortgages to be sold-on as CDOs, CDSs, that really brought this whole problem on in the first place. So it will be apt if Gordon could be brought down the same way.

  • Its seems the country has lost faith in the judgement of Brown and Darling etc if they were in a normal business situation they would be asked to leave, but Brown has the dilusion he is a world leader, he even had the cheek to compare himself with Churchill at the time when the Bank of England had to reign him in. this man will hang on till the bitter end for his own self gratification and to hell with us.

    It is incredible that what are possibly the most important jobs in our country are given to relatively unqualified, mainly unemployable and provenly avaricious, layabouts – purely on the strenghth of their false promises and lying allegations.To improve standards elected members, prior to taking their Seat,should be obliged to submit to a test on Parliamentary Procedures and Obligations; Universities should be encouraged to offer a pure degree in British Political Economics; Schools should be obliged to assist our children by offering a certificate in National Management, finding the time by replacing the warped and quite needless “Sex” periods which serve only to titillate the curiosity of the young thereby burdenning countless gullible children with parenthood. Proof of our folly in permiting the abysmal standards so evident in Parliament and Society is indicated by acceptance and tolerance of criminals in BOTH HOUSES of Parliament and apparent acceptance of the enlightenning disclosures relating to the extra- curriculum behaviour of our current Home Secretary and/or Spouse – proving once again : The ROT starts at the TOP!! How and where do I sign the Petition?

    No I don’t think Gordon Brown should resign, given time and the backing of his party I think he will do a good job, the trouble is people have short memories, I don’t want to see the Tory party running this country again, didn’t we have enough of it under Margaret Thatcher, I think Brown care’s about the people from all walk’s of life not just the chosen few, carry on Gordon that’s what I say and good luck.
