Gordon Brown "bottles" next week's nuclear summit in Washington

Gordon Brown brooding Gordon Brown cannot usually resist the opportunity to brag about any opportunities he has had to speak with President Obama and play the role of international statesmen striding the globe.

But next week he has opted to miss the chance for a final meeting with the US President before the general election.

As Reuters reports, he will miss the next week's nuclear security summit in Washington to concentrate on the election campaign and will send Foreign Secretary David Miliband in his place.

The Sun takes the opportunity to again brand the Prime Minister "Bottler Brown".
