Labour in membership meltdown.

I was reliably informed by a reliable informant that the reliable information was that Labour was claiming to have around 13,000 members in Scotland (which means that Labour has fianlly admitted that the SNP is the largest party in Scotland).

How does this square with the tiny amounts declared as membership?

Easy, lapsed members don't automatically leave the membership lists.

Even allowing for this, though, Labour's membership in Scotland in 1997 was reported as being 30,000, 11 yeasr later and Labour is claiming a membership of 13,000.
