Robin Cook has died

Robin Cook died today. It seems strange that he's gone so early - like Donald Dewar he died when many expected him to make further major contributions to British political life. There is now a big hole in his part of the Labour Party. For many Cook will be remembered as the first New Labour Cabinet minister to resign on a point of principle and for his Howe-like resignation speech that so devastated the government case for war in Iraq. He will be much missed.
