Fetch your tin hat from the wardrobe, Gordon, there are signs that the mob is getting restless. A petition calling on the prime minister to resign is gathering signatures at an alarming pace. On Friday, about 800 people had signed the simple appeal “Resign” on the Downing Street e-petition website.
Yesterday there were more than 7,000 names.
“This could be big, very big,” says the blogger Guido Fawkes, who is backing the petition.
Other bloggers are going further. They are urging readers to send Gordon “the shirts off our backs”. This idea seems to have been launched by a blogger known as Old Holborn, but is now spreading to other sites.
“I am dispatching four different shirts from different post boxes tomorrow,” says one disgruntled – and possibly shirtless – protester.
A Downing Street spokesman says no shirts have arrived so far, adding: “I’ve no idea what we would do with them.”
