On the eve of the G20 elite circus taking the stage in the English capital, London, I thought it appropriate to pay tribute to one of the very few politicians who deserves the title 'honourable' and that is The Right Honourable Robin Cook. He was a man of principle and justice and one who let it be known that he couldn't be bought. Although we held different beliefs regarding Scotland, Robin Cook was highly respected by many of all political persuasions. My thanks to Ampers for the video and I suggest you also visit The Truth or the Fight for a most interesting read.
The video is Robin Cook's resignation speech over the Iraq war. It has been shortened slightly to fit with Youtube's 10 minute policy but I do hope it reminds you, as it has done me, we have had politicians of integrity and honour in the past.
