Edinburgh Greens recorded the fourth highest Green result in the UK in Edinburgh East. This was the result of a great deal of hard work in a very difficult election. While our results were down in all four constituencies, the overwhelming vote for Labour meant it was impossible to make progress. The election represents a high-point for Green campaigning outside Holyrood elections in Edinburgh, and sets the groundwork well for our push in the Holyrood 2011 election.
