Also the party really does depend on membership fees to fight elections. No matter what you may have heard about Non Dom donors, it is a fact that Labour receive more from Non Doms. And contrary to what Labour ministers are trying to spin, Labour (with the help of the unions) are spending more in marginal seats. Labour are going to fight a dirty campaign and the Conservatives are going to need all the help they can get.
