Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

a big chunk of the Labour Party came out on television

What, I missed a protest by 100,000 Labour members?...

Does Labour not have somethinglike 160,000 members?

Labour membership falls to historic low - Telegraph

The collapse in Labour's grassroots membership numbers has contributed to its precarious financial position, with the party still £18 million in debt despite slashing its staff and spending.

In an official submission to the Electoral Commission, Labour admitted that its membership at the end of 2007 was 176,891.

I expect we've lost a lot more in the last year.

I was probably thinking of Wales figures for membership which is in the tens of thousands range.

I thought it meant that the party had not more members then to fill a large television-studio.

Oh, bite me, DoDo. ;)  I meant among the Very Serious People who go on the teevee as speakers for the party.

If it were actual party members, they would've had to take chairs away....
