Y esterday I invoked the memory of the late Robin Cook, the former Foreign Secretary and a man whom I got to know when he left office. During that time, he was working on his memoirs – called The Point of Departure – which, as well as being a gripping account of a tumultuous period in British political history, set the standard for the senior figures in New Labour's administration. One by one, they've written the book, taken the royalties, sold the serial rights, done the round of the chat shows and generally added to our impression of the dysfunction that characterised Labour's 13 years in power. We've lapped it up – how difficult Gordon was, how imperious Tony was, how secretive Mandelson was and so on, until we get to John Prescott – and it seems there's an inexhaustible public appetite for this sort of behind-the-scenes account.
