Westminster week

All week we have been debating the Academis Bill. I have spoken on several occasions - particularly on Monday and Thursday nights - see

Meanwhile you have to marvel at the access we have to the most amazing people: only this week I have
- met for nearly 2 hours the Home Secretary, at the Home Office,
- shared a meeting with the Parliamentarians Against Poverty Group who had Bill Gates as their guest speaker
- dined with the Tote who are facing being sold
- and lobbied hard for both the A1 [see Scottish Questions] and our Magistrates Court, in meetings / conversations with the Justice Team

The most impressive by far was Gates - whose amazing capacity to spend money on our behalf in Africa has saved literally millions of lives
