Putin’s murder of Alexei Navalny may well be a seismic moment. Navalny’s martyrdom will speak to all of the people of Russia, but especially to the liberal elites in Moscow and St Petersburg. They hate the war in Ukraine, they despise the corruption of the Oligarchy, they loathe the despotic regime in the Kremlin. They cannot say so – hundreds of arrests of protestors as Navalny’s death was announced prove that. But all dictatorships eventually are the victim of their own brutality, and Putin’s demise – we hope - may be close.
12th February was the 235th birthday of that great constitutionalist, abolitionist of slavery and author of the Gettysburg Address, President Abraham Lincoln. “That this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” (My late Father to tease my Mother that that was why he remembered the date, which was also their wedding anniversary!)
“The Lady’s not for turning…” if you remember that famous quote from one of Margaret Thatcher’s Conference speeches. It made her seem a Lady of Iron – a name she well deserved after the Falklands, Miners’ Strike, and so much else that the great lady did to save Britain from being the “sick man of Europe” which the Labour Party had left us (as usual).

The surgery is your chance to meet face to face with James and you are free to raise any subject on your mind. People come to James’s surgery for all manner of reasons ranging from simply wanting to put a point across, to a serious personal problem requiring James’s input, for example a housing, pensions or immigration issue.
James will discuss your problem with you and will let you know at the end of the surgery what course of action (if any is required) he will take. You will then receive a follow-up letter afterwards taking your case forward.

James Gray, MP for North Wiltshire today met with Baroness Diana Barran MBE, Minister for the School System and Student Finance to discuss the expansion of Malmesbury Primary School.Commenting James said: “I have welcomed the previously announced £6 million of investment by Sir James Dyson in to Malmesbury Primary School on the condition that it benefits the entire community and does not squeeze student numbers at other local and village schools like Lea and Garsdon and Crudwell”.
James Gray MP has backed a new campaign to honour the Royal Navy fleet which helped to bring about the end of slavery and freed 150,000 men, women and children.The West Africa Squadron, which operated 1808 – 1867, policed the seas between West Africa and America, boarding and seizing vessels suspected of being involved in the trans-Atlantic slave trade.

I am dreadfully sorry to hear the news from Buckingham Palace this evening. I wish His Majesty The King well in the treatment he must now undergo. My best wishes go to Her Majesty The Queen and whole Royal Family at this very difficult time. The People of Wiltshire and Gloucestershire hold them especially dear to our hearts as local residents and neighbours.
