What a wussy response

Some six months ago, a most excellent petition was launched. And it ran thusly:

“We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to resign.”

Details of Petition:

“There are many reasons why we might want Brown to resign, but rather than having lots of narrow petitions on this topic (most of which have been rejected), I wanted one for all of us.”

And in the six months since then, 72,234 people signed it. That’s a hell of a lot of people; more than three times more than voted for Prime Minister at the last election. So more than three times as many people as have ever voted for him.

But the petition has now closed, and the Prime Minster has deigned to respond. With the lamest thing I’ve heard in a while:

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.

The Prime Minister may be determined to build all that, but he had presided over the creation of a weaker, less fair, and all round worse place to be.

But he’s got a nice little delusional world going on, so he’s not going to go. Instead he’s going to keep screwing us over.

The graceless bastard that he is.
