The point of departure : why one of Britain's leading politicians resigned over Tony Blair's decision to go to war in Iraq by Robin F Cook( )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On 17 March 2003, Robin Cook, Leader of the House of Commons and former Foreign Secretary, resigned from the Cabinet in protest against the coming war in Iraq. His resignation speech against that war prompted the first standing ovation in the history of the House and marked the end of the ministerial career of one of Labour's most brilliant politicians. His arguments against that war are of profound interest and importance to American readers. For the two years prior to his resignation, Robin Cook kept a diary, a personal record of Labour's second term, that forms the core of this narrative. The Point of Departure is Robin Cook's unvarnished account of this dramatic period in British political history. Though surprised by his abrupt dismissal in 2001 as Foreign Secretary, he became determined to effect the changes in Parliamentary democracy that he believed were essential if Parliament was to move into the twenty-first century. As Tony Blair told Cook on offering him leadership of the House of Commons, "This is the job for you." Drawing on firsthand experiences in the Commons and the Cabinet, of encounters in conferences and corridors and late-night conversations, Cook details his gathering disillusionment with Tony Blair's change of direction, which he believes to be profoundly mistaken, and, above all, the change in foreign policy that led the United Kingdom away from its destiny in Europe and into participation in President Bush's war in Iraq. This is the inside story of a government in power -- and of the tensions between those who govern. But above all it is the story of a politician who genuinely wanted to bring democracy closer to the people, but who saw a government increasingly detached from the values of himself and his party, and who developed a growing conviction that the government position on Iraq was morally, diplomatically, and politically wrong

The point of departure by Robin F Cook( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robin Cook, tidligere utenriksminister og medlem av Underhuset i det britiske parlamentet, trakk seg fra regjeringen i protest mot den kommende krigen i Irak. Dette er Robin Cooks fortelling av sin tid som politiker, med særlig fokus på de to siste årene. Cook jobbet for en endring av hvordan Parlamentet fungerer, og i boken følger vi ham mens regjeringen går i en retning han mener er gal? uvillige til å skape sosial endring og med en utenrikspolitikk som har ført landet inn i en allianse med høyresiden i amerikansk politikk. Det er en bok om makt og konflikter på høyt politisk nivå, men også en bok om en politiker som ønsket å bringe demokratiet nærmere folk flest
