Former Cabinet Minister Robin Cook "quit as Commons leader in March 2003, in protest over the war in Iraq," saying "I cannot support a war without international agreement or domestic support." Cook died August 6, 2005, while visiting in Scotland. [1]

Finest Hour

"Robin Cook's finest moment in the Commons is generally believed to have come with his devastating analysis of the Scott report on the arms-to-Iraq scandal," Mark Davies reported March 17, 2003. "Just two hours after being handed a copy of the 2,000-page document, the then shadow foreign secretary pulled apart the Tory government's handling of the affair with what was regarded as a bravura performance."
