Macleod vs Cadbury – The Chiswick Calendar Election Debate

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.
