Gordon Brown dithers over EU treaty

By Bruno Waterfield in Lisbon and James Kirkup Last Updated: 3:13am GMT 14/12/2007

Gordon Brown has finally signed Britain up to the European Union Reform Treaty after an embarrassing period of dithering over whether to attend the formal signing ceremony in Lisbon.
Mr Brown signed the controversial document in a coach museum, having arrived late and missed a ceremony in the city's 500-year old Jeronimos monastery, which was attended by all of the other 26 EU leaders. As Mr Brown put pen to paper, most of the other leaders were still eating lunch.
