One of the Labour guys with a bit more genuine integrity, sad to see such a sudden and unexpected death
Robin Cook just DIED?????
"Youre known for having a liking for men who look like women."
"FFS I'm sick and tired of having to see a bloke bend over to pick something up or lean over and see their arse crack. For christ's sake pull your pants up or buy some underpants you bogan because nobody want's to see it. And this is a boat building shed (well one of them) not a porn studio."
Bloody hell, I just had a look at the BBC website - in the time it took for me to click the link, the story changed from "taken ill" to "died". I wonder if it was altitude sickness?
That's very sad. He was a good guy.
Hillwalking, apparently. Good parliamentary debater & a man of principle. Precious few of them in the Labour party anymore. RIP.
Shame he'll probably be best remembered for his sexual indiscretion.

RIP Fardin Qayyumi (AKA "cricket player"; "Bob"), 1990-2006
RIP Craig Walsh (AKA "Craig"), 1985-2012
probably not, only at 1000m, or at least I hope not! Maybe heart failure? Anyway bit insensitive me to speculate, im sure lots will be said in the coming daysOriginally Posted by Slow Love™
Don't worry, I don't think it's insensitive to wonder how somebody died.Originally Posted by Langeveldt
You're probably right, and odds are it was heart failure. I was just wondering if something brought it on, because I hadn't heard anything previous about him being particularly vulnerable health-wise, and he was only 59. It's just a shame.
Very sad news. One of the few politicians i appreciated and respected. Will be sorely missed .

Yes a complete shock it does sound like a heart atack. Very bad news as he was one of the best politicians around and carried himself with great honour and intergrety during the Iraq war. With such a poor opposition he was one of the important people that held the government too account
A man of integrity, one whose stance against the Iraq war remains a great tribute to the courage of his convictions.
RIP, a decent man.

yeah read about this when i came in from work, kinda taken aback by it. Sure not everyone agreed with his views, but you have to respect a man willing to stand up and defy the government from a position of power like he did over the Iraq war. A very talented politician and great speaker, he'll be missed by all.

Langeveldt: I of course blame their parents.. and unchecked immigration!
GingerFurball: He's Austrian, they tend to produce the odd ****ed up individual
Burgey: Be careful dealing with neighbours whose cars don't have wheels but whose houses do.
Uppercut: Maybe I just need better strippers
RIP mr cook, you have made my studying of politics much more intresting, you will be missed.
very sad news, especially for his poor wife he was a great man, putting his career on the line for what he believed in.
all bow to the little master
Honoured member of KKAS
I didnt really take much notice of him really... but sad news that he has past... May he RIP..
