There is a new e-petition on the Number 10 website which is doing the rounds across the right wing blogosphere. The petition states that "We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to resign". So far it has a little over 4000 signatories.
I was having a little look over the names of those who have called on the Prime Minister to stand down and was surprised to find a certain Mr. Tony Blair amongst the list of names:
It couldn't possibly be former Prime Minister Tony Blair. Could it?
Representing the right wing blogosphere we find Messers Tim Montgomerie of Conservative Home and Iain Dale.
Perhaps more surprising is the addition of Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families, Ed Balls, to the line up of those who would like to see Gordon resign. The supposedly ultra loyal Brownite can be seen on the list below:
Of course we have to question the validity of some of these names given the appearance of legendary mobster Al Capone on the petition. He of course died in 1947. Of syphilis apparently.
Although we probably don't have to wonder too much about whether Iain Dale and Tim Montgomerie have been calling on the Prime Minister to tender his resignation...
