Edinburgh South West: SNP Hold

Election Graphic
BBC

'A victory for positive campaigning'

Joanna Cherry, re-elected SNP MP for Edinburgh South West, said: "Our victory tonight is a victory for positive campaigning. I have fought hard to be a strong voice at Westminster. I'm proud of our SNP record. The Tories fought a wholly negative campaign ... with a miserable record at Westminster... I'm so happy Theresa May's plan has backfired spectacularly."
