A Brief History of Liberty

Liberal, Lover, Scientist
The decline of party membership in the UK
Figures are available for 2011 party membership of Labour and the Liberal Democrats (but not the Conservatives, who seem rather secretive) here:

The Conservative party is estimated to have a current membership between 130k and 170k, so for the sake of this graph, I put the middle value of 150k.
I also used data available here:

With all major parties in a long term decline, is party system democracy becoming a thing of the past?
