There have been widespread claims – many already debunked – of large-scale resignations among Labour members. These claims have been made by hardcore centrist advocates of the arrogantly-titled “people’s vote” – a new Brexit referendum.
But the latest Labour membership figures expose the lie completely.
Labour’s membership saw a surge in numbers to around 533,000 earlier this year after a slight dip as right-wingers jumped ship after realising they could not regain control of a party that has returned to its natural state.
And this month the figure stands unchanged, give or take a handful.
Either the latest supposed exodus was a near-complete fiction, or else any losses have been made up by new joiners.
And this after months of prolonged and vicious smears against the party and its leaders and shamelessly biased media coverage.
Labour’s membership has toughened – and has not diminished.
