UKIP membership up, Tory membership halves

The Tories are haemorrhaging members at a terminal rate according to figures in the Independent, losing 50% of their membership since Cameron took over as leader of the party in 2005.

Labour membership has increased by 20% since Gordon Brown resigned as leader whilst the Lib Dems have lost 5,000 members in just two years.  UKIP membership is up 2,500 since 2009 to 19,000.
