You see I would, but on reflection I'd much rather watch him get fecking mullered in the next general election. If he resigned now he would be a smarmy bastard saying how he was never voted out of power and how labour would have won if he hadn't stood up for some principal or other and resigned.....

Don't worry - he won't resign anyway, but refusing it would help him get even more humiliating loss in next years elections.

Here, here .....vote Tory for future Glory, keep in the Brown temporary because his leadership has not been exemplary.



flippin heck I feel like Pam Ayres without the saucy innuendo at the end of the poem.

Is it all the fault of Brown? or is this the consequence of 12 years of Labour (of which Brown had had large part) fooking up the economy. You have to hand it to Blair he timed his exit perfectly ..

and as if by magic up pops Blair ...


The former Prime Minister has privately expressed his despair at the Labour government's decision to target the wealthy in the Budget.

Some of the leading architects of New Labour have also savaged the move, which they believe has cost Labour any hope of winning the general election.

The revelation that Mr Blair has privately indicated his opposition to the headline 50 pence tax rate for people earning over £150,000 will cause consternation in Downing Street,.

One friend of Mr Blair said: "Tony thought the original proposal to raise the top rate to 45 pence was just about saleable in the current economic circumstances.

"But he believes taking 50 per cent is not acceptable. It would not have happened if he was still there. He thinks it's a terrible mistake."

One of Mr Blair's closest allies said: The 50p tax move is a disaster. Blair would have cut taxes, not increased them."

The best thing Labour could do right now is sack Gordon Brown, blame him for everything, and set about trying to rescue as many seats as possible from the carnage next year.

For flip's sake, think for a moment before you sign. Do you really want GB to resign before the next election, and thereby possibly make Labour slightly more electable?

On the other hand, as there's no way he would resign just on account of a petition like this, maybe it is a good idea to sign if only to help discredit him even more.

He won't resign - that's the whole point of petition to give him that choice to show himself power hungry bastard who'd cling on to power until the last possible moment.

Perhaps Her Majesty (as the Head of State) should order the Army to take him down and declare new elections.

Well I signed it anyway, although I do hope he stays to get a kicking in the next general election.

I'm sure he will dismiss it as a Tory smear campaign, and not the voice of the people anyway :)

If he resigns, I cannot see Labour having a mandate to stay in power until 2010. It would inevitably result in a 2009 election as soon as a new Labour leader was voted for by the party.

The Economy is more important that politics at present so I would favour an election now with a smaller Conservative Majority and a years headstart in fixing the crisis than a 2010 landslide and 1 more year of Brown.

It's not quite as popular as the one asking him not to reduce the national speed limit to 50, or the one that's something to do with the RNLI. I notice one of the recent signatories was a bloke called Michael Howard.

Indeed, given his status and importance, it would only be right to give exemption in this case, as a mark of respect for the man and all that he has done for the country.

Think of it as a parting gift from a grateful electorate.

The petition sig count completely eclipses the number who voted him in as MP in his local constituency http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirkcaldy_and_Cowdenbeath_(UK_Parliament_constitue ncy)#Election_results (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kirkcaldy_and_Cowdenbeath_%28UK_Parliament_constit uency%29#Election_results)

..which means the general populace hopes he will immediately swallow a cyanide pill..or two, followed by guzzling a trough of swine snot chaser. Just to be absolutely sure.

Actually I am quite happy for him to stick around a while longer. Another 6 months and he'll have destroyed his incompetent party for at least the next 20 years.....until the next generation comes along not knowing that labour don't understand economics or business.

Two days after it happened, even the BBC now carry the story. They also carry Clarke ashamed to be a Labour MP.

Who knows, maybe the evil snot goblin will take the holiday weekend to think about it and GO on Tuesday. :wave: :suicide: :yay:
