Victorian Labor party membership details – old but enough to give you an idea –
this time from Simon Crean’s seat of Hotham. They give branch memberships on
the different levels of membership rates – lowest to highest – and finish off with a total:
Hotham Federal Electorate
Labor is the party of the worker and all that, but the numbers again seem
particularly skewed to members on the cheap rates. 67% of the membership was on a concessional
rate when this study was done.
The Clarinda and Clayton South branches. Cambodian
stacks from the right make up about a quarter of the membership in Hotham. No
prizes for guessing who controls these branches.
