Baillie wanted the UK to stay in the EU in the 2016 referendum, but during her 2019 campaign, she supported Brexit to honour to results of the Democratic referendum. Baillie is against removing an 18th century statue in the center of Stroud. This statue has been described by “Stroud Against Racism” as a racist caricature of a black boy.
The monument, which was erected in 1790, commemorates the Marquis of Waterford who was a military leader under King George III. The statue depicts him as draped in red with ruffles around his neck and wrists. According to “Stroud Against Racism,” this is a racist caricature of a black boy.
