Gordon Brown Is Imploding

…or…Another One Bites The Dust.  Gordon Brown’s administration is imploding and calls for his resignation are getting louder.  Do you think our Congress will pay attention when the british government collapses because their treasury is empty because of Gordon Brown’s “stimulus” spending, and slow down the freight train of printing, spending and debt that is going to collapse our economy if it does not stop?

U.K. Minister Quits, Asks Brown to Resign

Another minister in Gordon Brown’s cabinet resigned — and also called for the U.K. prime minister himself to quit — as the Labour Party braced for a poor showing in local and European elections.

U.K. voters cast ballots Thursday for both local offices and spots in the European Parliament, with a focus on the question of how well — or how poorly — the ruling Labour Party, headed by Mr. Brown, will fare. It’s the last U.K.-wide electoral test ahead of a general election which must be called before next June, and Mr. Brown’s party has been forecast in some recent polls to finish third or even fourth in both elections. That would add to pressure for the prime minister to step aside amid frustrations with the U.K.’s recession and a series of scandals.

As polls closed at 10 p.m. in London on Thursday, Mr. Brown received another rude shock, this one from a member of his own cabinet. U.K. Work and Pensions Secretary James Purnell resigned from the post and called on Mr. Brown to step aside for the good of the Labour Party.

Mr. Purnell became the third member of Mr. Brown’s cabinet to quit in as many days — but the first to openly call for the prime minister to quit. While not the biggest name in the cabinet, Mr. Purnell has been seen as a rising star.

“I now believe your continued leadership makes a Conservative victory more, not less, likely,” wrote Mr. Purnell in a letter to Mr. Brown. The opposition Conservative Party has surged ahead of Labour in opinion polls in recent months. Mr. Purnell added: “Calling on you to stand aside to give our party a fighting chance of winning” in the next general election.

    Unfortunately, I don’t think they give a rat’s ass.

  2. I hate to tell him this, but “Party before Country” never ends well.

    Brown needs to resign as do most in DC. And we need to impeach Obozo.

  4. England has been far more socialist than America for many years now and just as here there is little difference between the parties. Just like here, the central banks rule, and just like here, the economy is being intentionally washed sown the drain. This is all just a show for the sheeple.

    OT but I heard via email from srm that Bo is planning on selling China the blue prints to the B2 Spirit Stealth bomber for $50 bilion! Gates is against it and was told if he doesn’t agree to it he will be replaced. S.Korea and Japan, among other countries are, are really hot! He is not taking it to congress but is dealing directly with the Pentagon. If this is true he is endangering the whole world! We need to get rid of him FAST! He is so dangerous. How inept is that!

  6. No, it will make absolutely no difference at all to Princess Pelosi or the Marxist-in-Chief or any of the rest of the Commissars running the government. They’re on a tear to see how fast and how complete they can shred the Constitution and NOTHING is going to stop them from completing their rounds. Except maybe us, the ordinary bitter clingers who really do love our country, warts and all.

    No.

    Mr Purnell’s reasoning that Gordon Brown should resign were specious. Gordon Brown should resign because he is a traitor.
