Deserting Blair

The week's news at a glance.

London

One of Tony Blair’s top Cabinet ministers resigned this week in protest over the prime minister’s support for war in Iraq. Robin Cook, a former foreign minister and current parliamentary leader of the Labor Party, said he could not accept responsibility for committing Britain to a war “without international agreement or domestic support.” Two other ministers followed suit. As many as half of the Labor members of Parliament are opposed to the war, but the opposition Conservative Party is on Blair’s side.
