Five of the general candidates for Greenwich & Woolwich took took questions from voters at a hustings event in Charlton on Saturday morning – the last such event before Thursday’s poll.

Here is (slightly wobbly) video of the entire event, which was held at Charlton Assembly Rooms.

Part one: Opening remarks (3.16), housing (14.11), tax and public services (22.34), Brexit (32.10), Silvertown Tunnel and the climate crisis (41.54)

Part two: Corruption and transparency (0.05), housing (12.25), energy efficiency (24.24), Wikileaks and the NHS (33.50), closing statements (48.40)

The candidates who took the time to appear (from left to right on the panel): Rhian O’Connor (Liberal Democrat), Matt Pennycook (Labour), Victoria Rance (Green), Thomas Turrell (Conservative), Eunice Odesamni (Christian People’s Alliance). The Brexit Party’s Kailash Trivedi did not show up, nor did the independent candidate Sushil Gaikwad. The chair was Andrew Donkin. It was hosted by the Charlton Society in partnership with the Charlton Central Residents Association, Charlton Parkside Community Hub, and Valley Hill Community Hub – thank you to them for allowing filming.
