Hammersmith is a key marginal seat in the upcoming election and the diverse crowd pulled no punches in their questioning. Introduced on stage by Shaun Bailey and answering questions ranging from local council services to climate change, Mr Cameron looked every-part the Prime Minister in waiting.
In the process of answering questions put to him by residents drawn from all corners of the constituency, Mr Cameron spoke of his admiration for the drive shown by Hammersmith and Fulham Council to provide higher quality of services at a lower cost to residents, saying: "I believe in strong local government. It's not my job to run Hammersmith & Fulham but when I look at this borough I'm very proud of what they have done."
When the issue of housing was raised, Mr Cameron supported the council’s aspiration for mixed tenure housing and urged residents to be wary of the "black propaganda" pushed by the local Labour Party. He also took the opportunity to re-state the Conservatives stance against the building of a third runway at Heathrow, saying “I have looked carefully at the debate and the case hasn't been made for it. We think the third runway should not go ahead. Full stop, period, a third runway will not be built under a Conservative Government.”
