Momentum released a bizarre video on Tuesday in which it attacked the wealthy elite through the medium of Batman.  Yes, you read that correctly.  Corbyn's daft electoral strategy of targeting billionaires clearly meets with the approval of his Soviet footsoldiers and they've dreamt up this equally daft way of relaying the message.

Not sure what they hope to achieve by turning one of the world's most popular comic book heroes into a villain.  Surely if they had any sense they would have gone with Robin Hood?

In any case, Corbyn's portrayal of himself as some kind of working man's crusader against the ultra rich elite will ultimately backfire.  His lie is easily deconstructed.

He's worth £3million, almost twice as much as Boris Johnson.  He was brought up in a manor house, he was privately educated and has never done the graft of a working man in his entire life.  He represents a wealthy middle class constituency in London and he represents London's interests over Labour's working class heartlands.  He is not against the elite, he is the elite.
