The SNP's victory in Glasgow East has brought the eyes of the worlds media to Glasgow and to Scotland. During the campaign the SNP received visits by German, Irish and American journalists.

Following the SNP’s victory on Thursday the impact on Gordon Brown and the Labour Government has been played out around the world. Commenting on the global interest in Scottish politics and the SNP’s success SNP Westminster leader Angus Robertson said; “Thursday’s by-election has sent shockwaves around the world. The SNP’s success has had a huge international impact. “The Glasgow East by-election has generated more international interest in any Scottish by-election since Hamilton. “Scotland and the Scottish Government took a step up on the world stage with the SNP’s victory in 2007. The SNP Government’s outward looking agenda and impressive first year in power has kept the international press enthralled with developments in Scotland. “Victory in Labour’s former heartlands has only increased the interest in Scottish politics and Scotland’s future.

“When Winnie Ewing won Hamilton in 1967 she issued the enduring line “Stop the world. Scotland wants to get on."

"With the international interest in this by-election, the SNP Government’s progress, Scotland’s increasingly strong links around the world and international interest in the National Conversation Scotland is once again making her mark.”

"Labour loses vote
Britain's ruling Labour Party lost a parliamentary election in one of its traditional strongholds in a serious setback for Prime Minister Gordon Brown, results showed on Friday.
Defeat in Thursday's poll in Glasgow East, which Labour won with a huge 13,500 majority at the 2005 election, will fuel Labour discontent with Brown's leadership and could lead to moves to oust him, some analysts believe."
