Jubliant Michael wins for Labour


A JUBILANT Michael Connarty was today re-elected as the area’s Labour MP – with an increased majority and share of the vote.

Mr Connarty comfortably won the Linlithgow and East Falkirk seat with 25,634 votes – more than 12,500 ahead of his nearest rival Nationalist Tam Smith (who polled 13081). The Lib Dems and Conservatives were placed third and fourth.

The full results are on the BBC website and The Falkirk Herald website.

The announcement came around 2 a.m. at the count at West Lothian College in Livingston. Michael is pictured with supporters and workers from Grangemouth and Bo’ness after the result was announced.

Labour also held onto the neighbouring Falkirk and Livingston seats – both key targets for the SNP.

    As a Grangemouth Labour Councillor I would like to say a big thank you to all our enthusiatic, and hardworking party activists who helped deliver Michael back to Westminster with a whopping 12,500 Majority.

    The reason we did it was we worked as a team, we had lots of fun but we also worked extremely hard, and what was good was both Michael and Cathy worked beside us every step of the way, each branch helping each other.

    I am very proud to be part of such a fantastic team.

    Well done everyone
