Our reporters went to High Street, Sidcup to ask residents whether Prime Minister Gordon Brown should stay or go.

Matthew Cole

PENSIONER Alistair Surtees, 82, from Sidcup, said: "He is quite competent, he just gets a bad press and that's his problem.

"All the bad things seemed to happen all at once when he took over."

SPORTS THERAPIST Lisa Sayers, 33, from Orpington, said: "I don't really like him but I worry who would replace him. I think he should stay for now.

Sylvia Davies

"He has leadership qualities but he has been bogged down by plonkers."

PENSIONER Edward Males, 79, from Sidcup, said: "They should give him a chance. He was good in his last role. Let's hope he makes good."

PENSIONER Sylvia Davies, 77, from Sidcup, said: "We should give him a chance. I don't want that David Cameron getting in. I can't stand him. I laughed when he lost his bike."

ROOFER George May, 23, from Eltham, said: "He should go. He seems like a nice bloke, but I don't see him changing anything.

"It's just like it was with Tony Blair at the moment. When's the day going to come that we see tax go down?"

Lisa Sayers

SUPERMARKET worker Matthew Cole, 25, from Sidcup, said: "He is useless, he just seems to keep messing things up with new ideas.
