Radio broadcaster James O'Brien has mocked the Mail on Sunday for its story on Keir Starmer buying his mother a field to house rescue donkeys.
The Daily Mail's sister newspaper tried to use the fact that Starmer had purchased the land - which could be worth up to £10 million - as 'double standards' from a politician who champions his working class background.
But O'Brien tore the story apart with a tongue-in-cheek analysis of the newspaper article, which he said was 'almost like Watergate'.
'Now that we know Keir Starmer bought a field behind his parents house so his late mother could look after rescue donkeys, that's it for Labour for the next generation, isn't it?
'I don't know if you saw the Mail on Sunday yesterday, they really pulled down the pants of the Labour leader.

'It turns out that in 1996, Keir Starmer, who was then a successful lawyer, bought a field behind his parent's house - for his mum who was a nurse and his dad who was a toolmaker - so practically the Earl of Sandwich.
'He brought a field behind his parent's house, in which his mum used to care for rescue donkeys. And after she became unable to walk due to a disability, she was able still to keep an eye on the donkeys by looking out of her window.
