Macleod vs Cadbury – The Chiswick Calendar Election Debate 12 May 2017

The Chiswick Calendar Election Debate was standing room only in the Boston Room of George IV in Chiswick on Wednesday 10 May. Brentford & Isleworth candidates Mary Macleod (Conservative) and Ruth Cadbury (Labour) were asked by BBC news presenter Rachel Schofield about their views on Brexit, the NHS, housing, education, the economy and a third runway at Heathrow.

Mary Macleod dismissed Ruth’s claims that Labour could fund their promises on the NHS while Ruth mocked the Conservative candidate’s repetition of ‘strong and secure’ as a description of Theresa May’s leadership style. “They said that about the Titanic” she said. Watch the full hour’s debate here.
