Residents quiz Ann Widdecombe on a wide range of issues
Member of Parliament and author Ann Widdecombe joined 40 Nightingale residents at the Clapham-based care home recently for a lively debate about British life.
Speaking on a range of topics including knife crime, establishing a zero tolerance policy within the police force, the Government’s management of the recession and the controversial issue of Holocaust denial, Ms. Widdecombe also responded to challenging questions from the floor about care for elderly and families’ responsibilities to their relatives’ care needs.
Nightingale chief executive Leon Smith said Ms Widdecombe led a charged debate and responded to the residents’ testing questions openly and honestly.
‘We are so pleased that she was able to join us and hope to welcome her back again in the future,’ said Mr Smith.
‘Nightingale benefits from an exciting range of visitors who connect with our residents and provide excellent opportunities for them to discuss contemporary topics.’
