Robin Cook

I just heard that Robin Cook died today. I have to say I’m somewhat shocked.

Along with Tony Benn, Robin Cook represented the antithesis of the archetypical deceitful politician. Robin Cook was a man of genuine principles: someone willing to give up his career when Tony Blair trampled all over the ethical foreign policy that he had helped draft.

I would have given that man my vote.
