OK, so I did not manage to get to the launch of LME. But today I signed up to become a member via their new website. It might not really win too many design awards, but the site is functional enough, and there is a kind of members area as well. They confirmed my membership within an hour – quite impressive. Further, as I am now a member of the organisation, I should in theory have access to events etc. in the future. The question in my mind is very much what the LME could or should do in the coming months and years – the policy statements on the website sound very much like what the European Movement does. I wonder whether – for example – intensive efforts could be made to train Labour Party members about the EU? Anyway, time will tell, but maybe my rant was too negative yesterday.
