OUTGOING Liverpool Wavertree MP Jane Kennedy today called on Gordon Brown to resign as leader of the Labour party.
Mrs Kennedy, who announced her intention not to seek re-election last year, said her was a poor communicator and needed to step aside.
"People in Liverpool want Gordon Brown to continue to lead the country through this economic crisis, but he has been unable to persuade the
British people particularly in the south of England that he's got the right policies," said the long time critic of Brown.
"It is because of his inability to communicate properly.
"I think it would be unseemly for them to spend days and days scrabbling around to do a deal with reluctant partners.
"The Labour party would have had a majority if we had had a different leader.
"The Conservatives have won an incredible number of seats and the Labour party has lost a large number of seats.
"But the Conservatives should not just march forward thinking they have a mandate to make massive cuts. They have got to put the economy
of the country first."
