The petition simply read:
"We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to resign."The petition, instigated by Kalvis Jansons, closed on Thursday, 22nd October 2009. The petition received 72,234 signatures.
The government's response is:
"The Prime Minister is completely focussed on restoring the economy, getting people back to work and improving standards in public services. As the Prime Minister has consistently said, he is determined to build a stronger, fairer, better Britain for all."Which in my view doesn't seem to be an answer to the petition. They could have included the line 'The Prime Minister is determined to continue to lead the government...' and then continue with the rest of the original response.
