Oh come on people, the Labour Party didn't set up the Downing Street e-petition site so anyone can just drop by and heap even more abuse on the hapless Scot in charge. What it is there for is to engage voters in discussion on topics of concern and to show the Government our thoughts and what we would like to see done about them.
The person who created the 'Please Go Gordon' petition obviously thought he was raising a legitimate concern as did the 36,700 signatories that made it the most popular campaign on the Prime Minister's own website.
I expect that as news gets out about this petition, the number of petitioners will go through the roof and a petition will be raised urging the Leader to hang around a bit longer yet. Actually, there is one already and its attracted 31 signatories including a Mr Gordon Brown and a Mrs Gordon Browns mum.
The No 10 e-petition page was set up in 2006 and the Prime Minister's office responds to petitions with more than 200 signatures which may be interesting.
The Labour Party's other recent trip online was Gordon Brown making an announcement about his Party's expenses scandal on YouTube but that ended with user comments being switched off after a deluge of unsavoury comments.
Yes, it is funny and Gordon has been on the sharp end of a good shoeing recently but remember that he is going to be in charge for at least another 12 months yet so let's not peak too soon. We have to pace ourselves people.
