This is why they are bringing back Campbell
Yup, if Broon wanted to give people an excuse to say that he dithers and is cowardly he couldn't have done it much better than by... dithering about whether to go the Lisbon summit then opting for a cack compromise.
He plans to go to the summit but then turn up late and miss the public signing ceremony. Then he can sign the treaty secretly after lunch.
Nice one. Genius. The entire UK media will now be trying to get the "money shot" of Brown signing the treaty. It seems to be going down fairly badly both in the media and in Downing Street. According to Ben Brogan the PM was surprised to find that on his return from Afghanistan the main topic of interest in the lobby was his jaunt to Lisbon. Doh.
