Labour candidate fails to remember any party policy

Ruth Cadbury, Labour parliamentary candidate for Brentford and Isleworth, struggled to name even a single pledge when asked about the key policy of her party's manifesto.

Ms Cadbury was being interviewed by a reporter from a local website, the Chiswick Calendar, but struggled to answer the simply question, holding her head in her hands and saying: "I'm reading them everyday."

Eventually Ms Cadbury manages to say: "the key thing is to balance the books...we have to support the NHS and that our schools and our young people are supported and all young people can get a job and employment."

The interview was recorded after a local hustings during which the paper says she:

... confidently answered questions on housing, tax, the NHS and Heathrow expansion and challenged her Conservative opponent on her party's manifesto pledges.
