‘Hijacked by Marxists’, promised the Sun: Corbyn’s ‘hardline cabal’ 
exposed! On Saturday, the paper published a network map it claimed was 
drawn up by ‘former British intelligence officers’, detailing a web of 
‘hard-left extremists’ supposed to lie behind the current Labour 
leadership. It had even coded a natty little chatbot to help its readers 
decipher the sprawling chart. ‘Who is James Butler?’ I asked it. It told 
me I co-founded Novara Media, which is at least true – though it got the 
dates wrong – and that I was connected to various people I’ve never met. 
I have yet to be invited to any cabal, hardline or otherwise.
