IT WASN'T ME, I WASN'T THERE, I DIDN'T DO IT:

Prime Minister Brown skips EU ceremony, and U.K. rivals pounce (Stephen Castle, December 13, 2007, IHT)

Blaming a scheduling clash, Prime Minister Gordon Brown of Britain missed an elaborate signing ceremony Thursday for a far-reaching treaty on Europe's future, a move seen by critics as symbolic of his country's ambivalence toward the European Union.

Alone among the leaders of the 27 EU nations, Brown was absent from the proceedings in the 16th-century Jerónimos Monastery in Lisbon, delegating the role of representing Britain to Foreign Secretary David Miliband.


That's what vice presidents are for.

He can hide, but he can't run. Brown is toast.
