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.

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.
