Latest figures of just a few weeks ago showed UKIP on 30,000 members (up 10k from these figures) so have they now over taken the Lib Dems for membership as well? If Lib Dems are in such steep decline. 

Also begs the question again of who gets all the money? Labour has more money flooding in than the Tories & Lib Dems combined. I am sure that will get some mileage in the next few years.

Labour's income in 2012 was around £2.75million more than that of the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats combined.
Ed Miliband's party had a total income of just over £33million and spent around £30.2 million.
It compared to an income of £24.2 million and expenditure of £23.3 million for David Cameron's Tories.

Meanwhile, Nick Clegg's Liberal Democrats took in just over £6 million and spent more than £6.4 million

However the accounts, released by the Electoral Commission, also Labour's membership also dropped, from 193,961 in 2010 and 193,300 in 2011 to 187,537 last year.
Labour's income was up from £31.2 million in 2011 and Conservative funds also rose from £23.7 million, while Lib Dems saw a small fall from £6.2 million.
Both the Scottish National Party and the UK Independence Party bucked the trend of falling membership figures.

The SNP saw membership soar from 16,232 in 2010 to 24,732 in 2012, on the back of the party's capture of overall control in Holyrood, while Nigel Farage's UKIP has grown from 15,535 in 2010 to 20,409 last year.

Meanwhile, membership of the far-right British National Party continued to tumble, from 14,046 in 2010 to 7,651 in 2011 and just 4,872 in 2012.

The SNP had an income of £2.3 million in 2012, UKIP £1.2 million and the BNP £462,450.
