Lanarkshire lasses - Angela Crawley MP, Councillor Julia Marrs, new MEP Aileen McLeod, and MSP Aileen Campbell with Provost Ian McAllan and Rural minister Fergus Ewing in Lanark earlier this month. 


The SNP received 38 per cent of the vote nationally, but in South Lanarkshire its share was even higher, at 41 per cent of the vote, well ahead of Labour trailing at 13 per cent (knocked into third place by Brexit on 15 per cent), and the Conservatives equalling the Lib Dems at 11 per cent of the votes.

The SNP won in every part of mainland Scotland, with the party making history by achieving the country’s biggest ever margin of victory at a European election and securing three MEPs.

The emphatic win means the SNP is on course to send Alyn Smith, Christian Allard and Aileen McLeod to the European Parliament.

I welcome the result, and the election of Aileen McLeod to a strong team of ‘Lanarkshire lasses’ at every level of government now.

People in South Lanarkshire and across the country, have sent a strong message that Scotland does not want Brexit.

This is the biggest European election win for any party ever seen in Scotland. Winning three of the six available seats in Scotland is simply phenomenal.

Throughout this campaign the SNP has offered a message of hope and ambition. Scotland wants to be part of an EU that allows us to travel, work and live freely across Europe.

Scotland deserves better than a Westminster system that isn’t working – it’s no wonder more and more people believe Scotland’s future should be as independent country within the EU.
