RIP: Robin Cook

I was shocked to hear that Robin Cook died this evening. I saw a news flash saying he'd been taken serious ill earlier in the day but to actually learn of his death was a jolt.

I may not be a fan of Labour but Robin Cook was one of the best, and most honest, MPs in Parliament. He was a man that I respected very much - not least in his commitment to stand by his beliefs and actually quit the Front Bench because of his opposition and disagreement about the governments reasons for going to war in Iraq.

He will be incredibly sorely missed.
