West of Scotland

Still waiting on the List result, but on the Constituencies:

Labour hold: Clydebank & Milngavie, with a 2.6% swing to the SNP; Dumbarton - 8.9% swing to the SNP; Eastwood with an 891 vote majority and a 3.7% swing to the Tories; Greenock & Inverclyde with a 6.4% swing to the SNP that puts them in second place ahead of LibDem Environment Minister Ross Finnie; Paisley North with a 1.3% swing from the SNP; Paisley South with a 3.4% swing from the SNP and West Renfrewshire with a 1.3% swing to the Tories where Leader Annabel Goldie takes second place ahead of 2003 SNP Leadership Challenger Bill Wilson.

Labour gain Strathkelvin & Bearsden from Jean Turner who is beaten into third place.

SNP gain Cunninghame North by a majority of just 48 votes. Ex-SNP MSP Campbell Martin polled 4,423 votes here and very nearly split the Nationalist vote sufficiently to allow Allan Wilson back in. I warned readers about that possibility last year and it nearly came to fruition.
