  • Woo! Yay!

    Your membership has only fallen by 34% whilst in power not 35% as before!

    Misleading and too much spin from the Lib Dem press office. These targets and pressure sales tactics from the Lib Dem membership campaign are also wrong.

    I might be being a bit pedantic, but we need to stop using this 2,000 figure when the net increase of 7-800 is the more accurate one to use. It seems every time one of the main parties publishes a stat it’s been fudged, and people wonder why voters are angry.

    Are there any free memberships in this, perhaps?
