Dear Mr Brown
Thank you for trying to serve your country, I think you would be the first to agree however that your recent attempts have fallen somewhat short of the minimum standard required for a competent Prime minister. In the circumstances I think that the best action would be for you to "do the decent thing" and call a general election. I know this must come as a blow to you but there is really no point hanging on as there is no prospect of an early recovery. Why don't you just settle down to concoct your autobiography in a quiet spot in your home town, a change of scene would certainly do you good as I have to say you have been looking a little worn of late.
I strongly believe this is the right thing for you to do.
And the undersigned
