All in all it's just another brick in the wall:
Kuwait's prime minister and his government resigned on Monday, bowing to escalating demands by protesters and opposition deputies that he step down over corruption allegations.
The oil-producing state has tolerated criticism of its government to a degree rare among its Gulf neighbours, helping to insulate it from the protest-driven political tumult that has helped topple four Arab leaders this year.
But tensions rose sharply this month when opposition lawmakers and protesters stormed parliament to demand the resignation of Prime Minister Sheikh Nasser al-Mohammad al-Sabah.
"We decided to submit our resignation to comply with the national interest and due to the danger the situation had reached," the state television channel reported Sheikh Nasser as saying.
The storming of parliament followed a request filed by a group of MPs to question Sheikh Nasser, which was blocked by the cabinet in a move decried as unconstitutional by the opposition.
Kuwaiti Times has more on this:
The Islamist Ummah Party welcomed the government's resignation but insisted that the political crisis will continue in the country as long as the root cause of the problem is not resolved. The party demanded in a statement to adopt true democracy by resorting to the elected popular government system instead of the current one. The liberal Progressive Movement called on the government to stop interfering in elections and called for major constitutional and democratic reforms towards a true democratic system. It also called on the ruling family to stop monopolizing the so-called sovereign ministries like defense, interior and foreign affairs.
