Corbyn-backing activist group Momentum has announced a plan to improve young people’s political engagement and teach them how to campaign for Labour by setting up a network of 150 local groups dubbed “Momentum Kids”.

Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron also poked fun at the group’s plan, referring the Momentum Kids as “Tiny Trots” which gave rise to a hashtag coming up with socialist/Corbynite nursery rhymes.
