Grant Shapps’ property profits
STR (I think) asked about Shappsy's property portfolio recently. The DM has this to say: "Mr Shapps... has already pocketed an estimated Â£250,000 from a previous house sale, and could make a similar amount if he sold his five-bedroom detached house in Hertfordshire, which is currently worth more than Â£1million." So by MP standards, he's a choirboy (he's made no more money that I have, albeit he's a couple of years younger than I am).
