Robin Cook, the former Foreign Secretary, died in hospital last night after collapsing while walking in the Scottish hills he loved. [more]

This is an extract from Robin Cook's resignation speech to the House of Commons, 17 March 2003. It electrified Parliament and will be remembered as one of the most important addresses in modern Westminster history.

Generally speaking, I hate politicians, but he was okay in as much as he didn't agree with the war.

Apparently, he was about to be reappointed to the cabinet.

Agreed, he was a sound bloke who was brave enough to stand up for what he believed. There's an inquiry going on into the cause of his death. I just hope the outcome aint too interesting
