The good die young. Rest in peace, Robin Cook

Robin Cook was the first of the Blair cabinet to publicly protest and resign over Iraq. Before the war began, he spoke in Parliament to deliver a speech worthy of a Prophet: Iraq probably has no weapons of mass destruction in the commonly understood sense of the term - namely a credible device capable of being delivered against a strategic city target. Why is it now so urgent that we should take military action to disarm a military capacity that has been there for 20 years, and which we helped to create?
Ave atque vale, Robin!

It sound as if he passed away in the most beautiful spot in Scotland. I wonder if his former friend and betrayer, Tony Blair, is feeling any pangs of conscience right now?
"Blair" and "conscience" in the same sentence violates an important rule of grammar.

If Blair had a conscience, David Kelly would be alive.
