How unexpected.

:/

Mind you, I always thought that he was younger than the 59 it says in the article. That's still far too young to die, of course.

All the article says is that he was taken ill while out walking. So it could have been pretty much anything.

This is really sad. Although I wish he'd seen the light earlier, he was brave to do it in the end.

So unexpected.

Eh? 'Seen the light'?

Are you referring to his resignation as a cabinet minister?

Trust a RESPECT member to try score points in a thread about someone's death.

First David Kelly, and now Cook? Seems rather odd.

See, I thought it was that.

Neither the time nor the place...

And a little bit silly as he didn't do a Galloway. He was still in the party...

Why?

I can see why there were questions over Dr. Kelly's death, but Robin Cook's? And over a year later? I'm sure that loads of people opposed to the war have died in between...
Robin Cook wasn't particularly vocal about it in recent times anyway.

Sorry, I really don't see what's suspicious about this. He was young, but people still fall ill and die at 59.

I sat next to him on the Tube two months ago



It would have been my only opportunity to talk to him. Instead I ended up talking to some Australian girl about how ugly he was.

Thats a stupid comment to make, as he was firstly taken ill in hospital after collapsing while hill walking then died. Its quite shocking as its happened so quickly and even though he got criticism for his actions over the last few yrs, he had still been a good politician.

I think the David Kelly one holds a lot more substance
