North Wiltshire Tory selection latest

The row over James Gray's attempt to keep his Commons seat is becoming almost unbearably sordid.

The Daily Telegraph reports:
The wife of a Conservative MP who left her for another woman has attacked her husband for belittling her fight against cancer.

Sarah Gray, the wife of the North Wiltshire MP James Gray, has written to the Conservative leader David Cameron to say she was "deeply hurt" by her husband's behaviour after he left her for Philippa Mayo, 44, a mother of three and fellow countryside campaigner.

Mrs Gray, 51, said she had been forced to respond after her husband had claimed she had merely had treatment for "pre-cancerous cells."
Gray's future will be dicided by the result of a ballot of local party members, which will be announced tomorrow.
