Are you a Party member, comrade?

A letter in yesterday's Guardian shows that the spirit of Brezhnev's Soviet Union is alive and well in the British Labour Party:
I cannot help but feel a little bit peeved with my left-leaning friends and acquaintances who voted tactically, or not all, to give Tony Blair the bloody nose he probably deserved. They will benefit from all of the future education, health and social benefits that those of us who worked so hard for the Labour government's return, and voted the same way, will enjoy. Is there not any way in which the benefits could be distributed according to electoral merit?
