They voted SNP!

Now that I've had a few celebratory drinks and a lot of sleep, I think I should probably write about the election results. It's not news any more I suppose, but the SNP won! 47 seats, 22 Councillors in Glasgow (one of which is me!), and massive change to the electoral map. Overnight, instead of being SNP activists, many of my friends are now SNP MSPs and Councillors!

I'm really proud of all the work we did to convince and inform the electorate. I'm humbled that the people of the Calton ward decided I was worthy of their vote - over the next four years, I intend to prove myself worthy of those votes.

Congratulations Councillor Thewliss, I'll have to buy you a drink sometime.
