The despatch box

We're you thinking what the Conservatives were thinking? Did you believe the Lib Dems were the real alternative? Is Labour moving forward not back? This blog will focus on all things political. It will be irritating, agitating and maybe just maybe it will get you thinking.

Robin Cook

I have just heard the sad news that Robin Cook has died today. Apparently he had a heart attack while walking in Scotland. My one personal memory is sitting next to him on an exercise bike in the gym in Westminster - and seeing that he was clearly much fitter than I was (and I was half his age!). That's what is so shocking - how a seemingly active and fit person can be struck down this way. A great orator, a former political heavyweight, and recent critic of New Labour policy. At times like this our thoughts should be with his family.
