How the adults do it

Gordon Brown,

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown says he will tender his resignation to the Queen immediately, given that the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats are near a deal on forming a coalition government. Earlier, Brown had suggested he would stay on until September.

"My constitutional duty is to make sure that a government can be formed," he said. "I've informed the Queen's private secretary that it's my intention to tender my resignation to the Queen. In the event that the Queen accepts, I invite her to invite the leader of the opposition to form a government."
