Here’s Tory chairman Brandon Lewis claiming 6,000 people have joined the Conservative Party since the beginning of the year:

The comment has attracted bemused responses such as this:

Perhaps it’s because, even with 6,000 new members, reports have it that Tory membership would still be less than 80,000.

And, as their average age is 72, natural wastage will see many of them pass away before the next election (if this hopeless Parliament lasts a full term).

Personally, I know people who get 6,000 new members on their Facebook pages over an average weekend.

The Conservative Party is on its way into the history books. Talk like this is merely the desperate flailing of a dying ideology.
