Four-in-Ten Britons Urge Blair to Quit Now

When do you think Tony Blair should stand down as prime minister?

Now                                      42%

Before the local council,
Scottish Parliament                      12%
and Welsh Assembly
elections next May

Before the Labour Party
conference in September                   8%
next year

He should stay on for a
full term as he said he                   20%
would but not stand in
the next general election                

He should stay on and fight the
next general election in 2009             18%

Ouch!  Do the British say "and don't let the door hit your ass on the way out" also?

What makes me sick is that there are still 38% true-believers. Most of these must be NOT Tories. Labour's current voter base is something scary.
