Conservative candidate John Randall and his wife Kate, listen to speeches following the result of last nights Uxbridge by-election. * Mr Randall held on to the Tory seat with a comfortable majority of 3,766 votes, enabling the Conservatives to celebrate their first Parliamentary by-election triumph for eight-and-a-half years. * 10/03/2003: Tory whip John Randall has resigned because he does not consider a case has been made out for war on Iraq, he announced Monday March 10, 2003. He is the first opposition MP to have taken such a step on this issue, although there are some Conservative backbenchers who are vocally against a war. Mr Randall, 47, the MP for Uxbridge, said: I wanted the freedom of the backbenches to be able to express my views about Iraq. I do not think at this stage military action is justified. I was, in fact, against war in Kosovo when people like Clare Short were all for bombing the hell out of it. Mr Randall said that he actually resigned on Wednesday but thought it would be unhelpful, in view of other events, to make it public until today.
