Jim and Labour's campaign team fought very hard for this victory. It was very satisfying for Jim to increase his majority. The SNP threw a great deal of resources at this seat. In the West End we were also treated to the bizarre sight of a former Conservative and Unionist councillor putting his name to an endorsement of the SNP candidate.
I certainly enjoy election day, for party activists it is always a long day, but it is good to listen to the concerns of local people. I spoke to a lot of people in the West End on Thursday and will be taking up a number of constituency cases as a result.
I look forward to working closely with Jim in the future championing the concerns of the people of the West End of Dundee.
