Who is the man behind Jeremy Corbyn’s “digital democracy” launch today? Meet Richard Barbrook, a mate of John McDonnell and academic at the University of Westminster who describes himself as a “cybernetic communist” and wrote the book on “Cyber-Communism”. And it gets a lot more sinister than that…

Photos on Barbrook’s Facebook page show he regularly wears the badge of Óglaigh na hÉireann. Translated as “soldiers of Ireland” and bearing the words “undefeated army”, it has been used by numerous armed republican groups including the Provisional IRA, the Continuity IRA and the Real IRA.

And that’s something any person with a statistical background can go and do.”
