Brown finally wins something

E-petition success at last

Security for virtualized datacentres

Prime Minister Gordon Brown has achieved a great victory.

It is not his miracle plan for MPs' expenses, issued via YouTube last week, nor is it increased confidence that his bailout plans will work.

But he is top of the Number 10 e-petition list.

The petition, posted by Reg reader Kalvis after a long battle, calls for Brown's immediate resignation and has just grabbed the top spot.

Currently 28,454 people have signed his going-away letter.

Brown knocks a petition calling for the RNLI to be exempt from paying license fees for its maritime radio frequencies into number two from the top spot with just 28,334 votes.

We're making a rash prediction that he will soon extend this lead over the RNLI. We're also predicting Brown will pay very little attention to the voice of the internet people.

Go here and do your bit. ®
