and it doesn't look there is any help on the way for either, with Spain and Portugal close behind,. With Zero contributions as yet from the noisy but unproductive Baltic members, it looks more and more like the entire burden of Euro debt is being left to the Germans. In an election year.

How long before those £3 memberships go out of date now? How long before the £10 memberships go out of date. A caller to James O'Brien today said he wanted to be a Labour party member, but his cheap membership had expired, and there was no way he could afford to renew it.

How many of those 600,000 members will there be in September I wonder?

There will be another by-election soon, as Gerald Kaufman has died.

Massive Labour majority (24,000) in his seat though - and the Greens beat the tories into third place at the last election.

But it will be interesting to see what happens with that majority- whether it stays where it was, or reduces.

Would imagine voters there will seize the opportunity to show their displeasure with Corbyn by voting tactically and - at the very least - dramatically reducing the Labour majority.

:lol: Well I'm quite happy to make the firm prediction that although they will retain the seat with a significant majority it will be another terrible result for Labour.

Only a fool would predict anything different.

It may be selfish (what is there about political allegiance that isn't), but it's the point I've been making for years.
