Stewart Hosie returned as Dundee East MP

Congratulations to Stewart Hosie who has been returned as MP for Dundee East. Stewart is a hard working MP and the people of the constituency have obviously realised this by returning him with an increased majority.

It is unfortunate that this election was such that people in Scotland were running scared of a Conservative Government or we generally would have hoped to have had Jim Barrie elected also.

Below is a message from Stewart and Jim;

SNP Candidates Stewart Hosie and Jim Barrie thanked the 26,066 voters in the Dundee East and Dundee West constituencies who voted SNP. The SNP gained 34.4 of the vote over the two constituencies.

Stewart said:"we want to thank all those who voted for us on Thursday and helped us to increase our vote across both constituencies.

I am delighted to have been re-elected as MP for Dundee East and I pledge to work hard for my constituents and for the City during the next term of Parliament to fulfil their trust in me."

Jim Barrie said: "I thank all those electors who supported us. We put a strong challenge to Labour in Dundee West. Clearly we lost out because the election was dominated to a great degree by the TV debates - from which we were excluded

It was therefore difficult for us to get our message heard. Labour managed to scare the voters that if they did not vote Labour they would get a Tory Government.

Of course it now looks like they will get a Tory Government anyway although the negotiation over the next few days will be interesting.

What is certain is that Labour massively lost out in England while they scooped up anti-Tory votes in Scotland.

Although we are disappointed we did not win in Dundee West, this is our best performance in a UK General Election since the 1970's"
