I don’t tend to comment on politics but I did over at Shelaghs place. My initial reaction to the resignation of Robin Cook (aside from the usual burst of apathy) was that, once again, a politician was using a national event to play a political card.
However, Mr.Cook appeared on BBC Breakfast this morning, stating in full why he resigned, and talking about his resignation speech.
So Mr.Cook, I apologise (in part). I think you DID do the right thing, although I think that people should remember just how shrewd a politician you are, and all the implications that go with that statement.
