    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.

    Spot on, Tony. And if local parties could retain 80% of the membership subs, just image what would happen!

    Are there any free memberships in this, perhaps?
