TOO LATE TO LEAVE NO FINGERPRINTS:

Brown skips key EU treaty Commons debate (Toby Helm, 21/01/2008, Daily Telegraph)

Gordon Brown faced a barrage of criticism today for being out of the country at the start of the most important Commons debate on Europe for more than 15 years.

The Prime Minister was accused by Opposition parties of “running scared” ahead of what is certain to be a tempestuous opening of Parliament’s efforts to ratify the Lisbon Treaty.

Tonight up to 30 Labour MPs are expected to stage an embarrassing revolt against the Prime Minister by backing cross-party calls for a referendum.
