[warning - UK politics] Well, Tony Blair, on winning his last election, said that he'd stand down in favour of Gordon Brown, the UK Chancellor of the Exchequer. His time scale suggested 2007, but many people think it should be sooner. The reason why Gordon Brown didn't stand for the last election as Prime Minister candidate is apparently because they thought Tony Blair had a better chance of winning. I think it should be soon rather than later. Tony Blair has done a good job in my opinion, certainly better than the Conservatives did in their last ten years of office, but we need a fresh face and fresh ideas. Plus, Brown really deserves it after what he's done for the economy. What are your views? Do you think Blair should stand down now for Gordon Brown, or wait until 2007/the next election? Do you want Brown to succeed him at all?

Brown should not be PM. It is wrong to have someone as PM who is not English. Remember we conquered Scotland, you are a 'province'. Therefore, you should be ruled, your people should not 'rule'.

Why? Because he was born in Edinburgh? That's hardly a good basis for nationality. I was born in Germany, does that make me German? Well?

EDIT: In either case, Blair sounds English, Borwn sounds like a Jock fuck. You can't have someone who 'cannae talk' English running the country. Scot-speak isn't English, thus Brown does not qualify.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Blair PM over the United Kingdom, not just England? Then why should only English people be allowed to be PM? It makes no sense.

You have the Welsh Assembly, The Scottish Parliament. De-evolution is a huge topic at this time within the UK with each nation wanting more control over their affairs. So, if that is the case, why should ENGLAND surrender control to someone who isn't English? Would an Englishman be able to be leader of the Scottish Parliament or Welsh Assembly? Doubtful, because no level-headed Englishman would sink quite so low as to lead the savages.

English for the English, Sctoland for the Scottish. It is what the Scots want, so I'd prefer not to see Gordon Brown leading the country.

Countries around the world do it with NATO, the EU, G7/8 etc. - they give control of some issues to other countries. This year Britain chaired the G8 summit, and had the ability to make minor decisions for other countires. Anyway, accent does nothing to show your nationality. Plus, you are given citizenship for where you are born and not who your parents were. So technically, Blair and Brown are both British Citizens, although born in Scotland. I believe the PM candidacy requires British citizens, not English.

But isn't the PM in control over United Kingdom? Not England? Or am I way off here?

The PM is in control of all of the UK, but power has been devolved for local issues to Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
