Tory MP, author and broadcaster Ann Widdecombe shared her trenchant views on British life with residents of Clapham care home Nightingale.

Ms Widdecombe dealt with issues including Holocaust denial, knife crime, introducing a zero tolerance policy within policing and the government’s handling of the recession. She also took questions on matters such as care for the elderly and family responsibilities to the care needs of relatives.

Asked what would be her priority if made Prime Minister for the day, she responded that she would strive to loosen the grip of the nanny state.
