SSU lied. People left.

The Swedish Social Democratic party youth league (SSU) has lost a third of its members. You see, when you inflate your membership roll to include people who didn't renew memberships or just plain left the league, all to gain more state funding, the "members" don't like it much.

The SSU was forced to send out letters to the entire membership asking if they wanted to remain in the league. Over 9000 of 29171 said "screw you and the horse you rode in on, hippy", or words to that effect in Swedish.

"That so many have now chosen to leave the SSU means that there have been faults in the handling of memberships," says the SSU's secretary Sara Heelge Vikmång in a press release.

No shit Sherlock.

I say, remove state sponsorship of political party youth wings, make the buggars work for donations, mow lawns for pocket money, or whatever.
