Starmer owns a field.

For keeping donkeys.

Land used for keeping donkeys would typically be grade 4 - poor quality. Or even the lowest grade, 5, very poor quality. But Starmer bought it because it was next to his parent's house and they could look at the donkeys out the window. Judging by an aerial view, it might be grade 3a or 3b.

This means a valuation range of £5,000 per acre to £10,000 per acre. Starmer owns 7 acres. I'd guess it's worth about £50,000.

The Daily Mail valued it at £10,000,000.

If you're going to lie, lie big.

Interesting comment on recent PMQs:

Basically, look beyond the theatrics - Starmer is forcing the government's hand on policy changes.

Yup, and if the government actually delivers, well, we're in a better place than we'd be otherwise.

Starmer's made it very clear he wants the government to succeed in tackling coronavirus, and was determined to use the scrutiny and challenge of opposition to aid them in doing so.

Exactly, which makes Johnson's bluster so bad. And Johnson had had the opportunity to play the statesman.

Having spoken to a few Labour contacts today, clear Sir Keir Starmer's strategy on Cummings is to keep quiet and let Conservative MPs do all the talking.

Told that when asked who was doing the broadcast round for the party this morning, one official replied: "Michael Gove".

I thought this was an elegantly worded statement too. The line saying Johnson "should have drawn a line under" this was directly aimed at the government line that we "need to move on" from the story.
Keir Starmer wrote:Boris Johnson should have drawn a line under the Dominic Cummings saga but was too weak to act.

The public have sacrificed so much for the health of our nation - which he's now undermined.

And sent a message that there's one rule for them and another for the British people.
