Can gaming change the face of politics?

The Shadow Chancellor, John McDonnell, came in for a bit of flak when he admitted that Labour was preparing for possible negative scenarios, such as a run on the pound, if it wins power.

Speaking on the fringes of his party's conference he said he was carrying out "war game-type scenario planning" in the event of an election victory.

The man helping Mr McDonnell do that is the academic Richard Barbrook.

He is also the man behind 'Games for the Many' - the political gaming studio that produced CorbynRun.

Ellie Price went along to meet him.
