Politicians throughout the world are the same, they think of their own benefit and not of the needs of the people.

Why are no politicians dismissed ,those whom din't do there job?

There are people who did their work, but because of the crisis are dismissed.Therefore, politicians whoms work is not done or are involved in a scandal should be dismissed.

They are just white collar criminals and that in a democracy.
In other countries they call this dictators.

Bye bye from Belgium.

He should step down. To save whatever is left from the Goverrnment & his Labor Party, his Family. the trust of the British People is taken advantage and such betreyal, from the British people's Leader himself, is
totally unacceptable & a shame to the image of the Country and it's People.

PM Brown is doing the right thing. Stay on as the leader of the country, shape up the team around him, face the enormous challenges in front of the country. There is no other 'better' solution for the country.

All the MPs who resigned as a result of this financial scandal should be investigated, tried and brought to justice. Their resignations are not enough.There should be no sacred cows, this inquest should involve everybody including David Cameron.

such this kind of expenses scandal is an immoral actions by certain figures in BROWN's goverment and he had not did enough to account and to show responsibilty and transparency , although his cabinet mates deserted him i think he should not step down ,but he should address certain measures which could save his political career and convince the british people and he has to do whatever to account those who made the image of the country dirty

No, I don’t think Gordon Brown should step down from power. Because a strong man never loses so easily. I think the truth of that fact is right. Still I would like to see Gordon Brown in power. Otherwise people like me will understand that he has failed to solve the problem.

MPs who exploited loop-holes in the expenses systems must go.

Mr Brown, as I understand, was not one of those who were claiming extortionate amounts.

In fact, he has done no wrong. There is no reason for him to resign.

Moreover, we need an experienced, solid character to ride us through this recession.

Golden Brown has been one of the most successful British economic ministers of all times.However he became Prime Mister when things where already going the wrong way as regards the economic situation we are facing now.I do believe it will be better if the British people can give him a chance to sort out things within his party and the economy as a whole.

Gordon Brown has been a succesful prime minster in so many aspects,if the people still have confidence in hm he should be giving a second chance
