In The Name of God Go!

During the early months of World War 2 with Chamberlain both ill and his position increasingly untenable there were calls in parliament for him to resign. Among the Tory members who spoke out against Chamberlain was Leo Amery, a man not noted for his oratory but who on this occasion surpassed himself. “You have sat too long for any good you have been doing. Depart, I say let us have done with you. In the name of God go!”

On Friday a petition was added to the downing Street web site asking Gordon Brown to resign. It quickly reached 500 signatures and by this morning it's well on the way to 12,500. I suspect by the end of the week it could be at 100,000. Who knows where it will end up. You can sign HERE
