IT'S THE CONVICTION HE DOESN'T SHARE WITH MAGGIE THAT'LL DESTROY HIM:

Gordon Brown to defend EU Treaty deal (Bruno Waterfield and Toby Helm, 19/10/2007, Daily Telegraph)

Mr Brown joined other European leaders at a Lisbon summit to crack open the champagne to toast a new EU blueprint that, he hopes, the Government can force through parliament without giving in to the clamour for a popular vote. [...]

But Conservative leader David Cameron has responded by accusing the Government of breaking its promise and treating people "like fools".

He told BBC Breakfast that the "red lines" insisted upon by Mr Brown were "complete red herrings".

"They have signed a constitution that transfers, that gets rid of, our right to say no, our veto, in 60 areas," he said.

"They've created a permanent EU president, a permanent foreign minister, a diplomatic service. This is a really significant transfer of power from Britain to Brussels."


And so we see why Labour kept him out of power for as long as they could.
