Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thanks to all who contributed to this diary. I was genuinely ignorant of the details of this subject and am now much better informed.

A pleasure!

But, in the context of your original question, one point I should have stressed more is that when you join a party in Europe, what you sign may be more than a simple membership form: you may be required to sign up to some written form of the party's principles. Also, the parties have detailed statutes. These form the basis of expulsions.
