Thread Name: Obit: Robin Cook MP (Aug 2005)
Subject: RE: Obit: Robin Cooke MP (Aug 2005)
I originally said that Robin Cook was a 'folkie friendly MP'
and that we needed all such personality such as this [to promote the folk music and opinons which we stand for]
I said later that he was invited to present the prizes to winners of folk awards on BBC Radio 2 folk programme fronted by Mike Harding, the same year as Estelle Morris and Steven Fry I believe! (2004)?
Robin as is well documented became in my view a 'folk icon' by way of resigning from Government by way of his heart felt views on Iraq which can be viewed via the internet by usual prompt words.
If you wish to demote him from this part of thread then so be it
