According to some reports, last Sunday saw the beginning of a virtual coup of Facebook’s largest Jeremy Corbyn supporters group entitled ‘I’m backing Jeremy Corbyn‘.#
Today, Thursday, saw that virtual coup take hold to its fullest, at just before midnight the groups membership had plummeted from over 15,000 members to less than 8,000. (5,000 by 1.30am Friday morning)
An account, presumably fake, by the name of ‘Artem Kalita‘ had allegedly posed as a representative of the Labour Party and convinced the original administration team to allow him onto the admin panel.
In the world of Facebook groups any administrator of a Facebook group can kick anyone out of the group including the groups creator.
This is exactly what happened leaving Artem the sole administrator of the group...
Artems Facebook profile has one key pointer as to his agenda as shown by the image below, some have speculated that aside from just being a Conservative Party supporter the profile may be what is known as a professional troll.
This is someone who is paid to conduct actions like that has been described in this article, the only question that would remain is by whom?
Has an offence been committed?
The Computer Misuse Act 1990 would seem to be the obvious place, but this seems to me to slip through the gaps.
