Labour party membership levels in Liverpool revealed
One result of the Labour party leadership election has been that the party has disclosed the exact number of members in each Constituency Labour Party.
In Liverpool the breakdown is as follows:
Liverpool Riverside 427
Liverpool Walton 197
Liverpool Wavertree 319
Liverpool West Derby 250
Garston and Halewood 451
Interesting that Walton, now held by the likeable Steve Rotheram, is the safest Labour seat in the country, yet has a very low membership base.
The membership base, which many expected to be higher, has caused a few giggles in Liberal Democrat circles.
We don't know what the Lib-Dem membership numbers are in Liverpool, but they are not believed to be as high as Labour's.
