Well, despite the euphoria, the Labour party didn’t win the snap UK election on June 8. But if ever a defeat felt like victory, this was it.

Much of Corbyn’s surprising ‘success’ has been attributed to marshalling the votes of young people through online activism. May’s Tories spent over Rs 80 crore on negative Facebook advertising alone but were outdone by the sophistication of Corbyn’s own social media messaging.
