The head of the eurosceptic Libertas party said Friday it had registered a million members ahead of the European Union\’s June election.
Actually, that\’s not snigger, that\’s laugh out loud guffaw! No, that ain\’t the number of party members. Not even across the EU.
Yes, yes, I know that I\’m biased here but I would suggest that the 1 million number is the number who have given their email to be updated. 16,000 is the true size of the party. Yes, across Europe.
I suppose there\’s one alternative way of getting to the million. If he\’s got an MEP candidate from a previously extant party and he then counts all of the members of that previously extant party as members of Libertas. Like, you know, when that twit married to a Sainsbury heiress moved from Tory to Labour, then every Tory Party member would now be counted as a Labour Party one.?
