It has a formal membership system (it exists and you can join it) and
some sort of democratic structure as defined by the articles and/or
memorandum of association.

The only slight glitch is that short of paying Companies House for a
copy we don't know what the formal structure is ;-) Somebody told me
at the conference that it had been put on the wiki while I was away
last week, but I just looked and can't see it.

Hopefully the AGM in a few weeks can sort some of these things out.
