Brown declines to resign
Democracy 2.0 inaction
Shocking news from the home of 10 Downing Street's e-petitions site, Prime Minister Gordon Brown is not going to resign.
Reg reader Kalvis posted a petition calling for Gordy to go back in April, when to be fair it was looking quite likely. Well over 72,000 people agreed with this sentiment and added their support to the online faux-democracy site.
And now Gordy has responded, or one of his flacks has anyway.
The Prime Minister is completely focused on restoring the economy, getting people back to work and improving standards in public services. As the Prime Minister has consistently said, he is determined to build a stronger, fairer, better Britain for all.
So there you have it. A stronger, fairer, better Britain? We can only wish you luck with that. And wait for the election... ®
