A response

The petition on the No.10 website, calling for the PM to resign has had a response. In it Comrade Brown’s mouthpiece says

The Prime Minister is completely focussed 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.

Which doesn’t address the issue. Will you resign or not? I seem to remember the petition bring back a vast number of signatures,  but then when has democracy ever got anything to do with anything?

After over a decade of Labour and over a century of Brown, you would have thought that they would have sorted out that list. And as for all that talk “restoring the economy, getting people back to work” and building “a stronger, fairer, better Britain for all”, this came to mind:

On the upside it isn’t an unequivocal  “no”.

The Prime Minister is completely focussed 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.

    Every petition I have ever signed on the Number 10 website came back with a meaningless response which didn’t address the petition – much like Brown’s answers at PMQs. I no longer bother to sign any.

    Govt announces without consultation that SRE should be compulsory in the English school curriculum from the age of 5. Parents protest and launch No 10 petition. Govt decides to hold consultation after all. Consultation shows 68% of responses against SRE on curriculum and 79% of responses against removing the right of parents to withdraw children from SRE. Govt goes ahead with both proposals regardless.

    It’s called democracy in action.
