WHO KILLED COO(C)K ROBIN? By GIOVANNI DI STEFANO
On the 6th August 2005, at approximately 14.20pm, Robin Cook MP died whilst walking with his wife Gaynor in the North West of Scotland. Mr Cook was flown by coastguard helicopter to Raigmore Hospital in Inverness, where he was pronounced dead.
Gaynor Cook, his wife, has never spoken about the matter to this day despite repeated requests from the media.
Tony Blair, the then British Prime Minister, failed to attend the funeral of Robin Cook on the pretext he was occupied on other matters.
In September 1978, in London, the Bulgarian defector Georgi Markov was murdered by the famous poisoned umbrella. A few weeks earlier in Paris an attempt was made on the life of Vladimir Kostov. Both Markov and Kostov involved the use of iridium pellets laced with Ricin.
In March 2003, Mr Cook resigned as Leader of the House of Commons. He did so because he could not support a war against Iraq without the backing of the Security Council. In his resignation speech however, he made a comment which may have subsequently cost him his life:
“I have heard it said that Iraq has had not months but 12 years in which to complete disarmament, and that our patience is exhausted. Yet it is more than 30 years since resolution 242 called on Israel to withdraw from the occupied territories. We do not express the same impatience with the persistent refusal of Israel to comply.”
That comment may well have cost him his life.
It is said that the MP for Livingston collapsed and fell while hill walking in Sutherland at the weekend. He fell 8ft down a ridge near the summit of the 2,365ft Ben Stack in Sutherland. A post-mortem examination found former Foreign Secretary died of ‘hypertensive heart disease’. The examination confirmed that he died from his illness rather than injuries sustained in the fall. The post-mortem examination was conducted at the Raigmore Hospital in Inverness.
During the first Gulf War, Saddam Hussein (deceased) launched rocket missiles against Tel Aviv. There was more than sufficient evidence to show that since 1991 and right up to 2003 Israel and Iraq were much closer than publicly perceived. Whilst on the face of it there was anti Israeli feelings by the Iraqi people it was in fact the Israeli Government that persuaded George Bush Sr. not to attack Baghdad at that time or to remove Saddam from office. Israel preferred dealing with Saddam Hussein than any who may come after him. Those submissions by the Israeli Government were more than recorded and of course both the NSA and GCHQ had transcripts of both intercepts and meetings.
One man knew of the close relationship between Iraq and Israel-: Robin Cook. That man had a copy of the intercept transcripts. He was not alone!
In September 2005, Robin Cook, was about to make the file available. It was this disagreement that led to the breakdown of relationship between Cook and Tony Blair which would subsequently cause Tony Blair to snub even his former Foreign Secretary’s funeral.
