26. He took a stand, didn't he?
And walked away instead of participating in something he didn't believe in.

Ah, if just every politician had such a format.

RIP, Robin Cook.
You were a politician with a large resource of human qualitites now sorely missed.

Peace too you, UK DU'ers. This is a sad day :-(
