The prime minister will travel to Lisbon this Thursday where other EU leaders will sign the European Union Reform Treaty but, tragically (sic), he will arrive too late for the signing ceremony. Mr Brown will be delayed in London by his appearance before select committee chairmen in the Commons and so will arrive only in time for lunch. Downing Street made clear today that he will sign the treaty then but, tragically (sic), the cameras will not record the moment for posterity.
However, the highlight of the post is this wonderful comment from "Justin".
As long as he signs it in the end, what does it matter? We socialists don't go in for all this ceremony stuff.
Absolutely not. Here are some socialists not going in for all this ceremony stuff.
Finally, "Justin" finishes off with a nifty dose of paranoia, just to make all those socialists feel at home (in the absence of a ceremony).
Not having the cameras there benefits the Tories anyway because if they win the next election they could always argue that Gord's signature has been forged. - "where's the proof that it was him signing it?"
Well, I'm learned something today; haven't you?
* Did you see how smug Batshit looked on Newsnight last night as he admitted that it would, indeed, be him signing the Constitution? In the name of all that's un-fucking-holy, I loathe that slimeball...
