Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

How many members do the Conservatives have left? Unlike Labour, the Tories do not publish an official figure. But John Strafford of the Campaign for Conservative Democracy (a kind of Tory Jon Lansman) estimates that party membership is now a mere 70,000. That compares unfavourably to Labour's 570,000 (making it one of the largest parties in Europe) and to the Tories' 1997 level of 400,000.
Thatís because anyone could join Labour for 3 quid. And they did, which is why Jeremy Corbyn is now leader. Thereís probably more Tories as signed up members of the Labour Party than in the Conservatives.
