Robin Cook is dead:
Former Cabinet minister Robin Cook has died after he collapsed while out hill walking, police have said.That's a shame. I might not have agreed with his politics or his attitude to marriage, but I admired the fact that he was one of the few politicains still prepared to resign on a point of principle.
It is believed that he was taken ill near the summit of Ben Stack, near an area known as Laxford Bridge in north-west Scotland.
The BBC are reporting this:
Osama Bin Laden's lieutenant Ayman al-Zawahri has warned London will face more attacks because of Tony Blair's foreign policy decisions.Well, fuck you too, Ayman.
His comments were made in a videotape which was broadcast on Arab satellite channel al-Jazeera.
The al-Qaeda deputy said: "Blair has brought you destruction to the heart of London, and he will bring more destruction, God willing."
