Deputy PM encourages other MPs to “get out of the property game”
Nick Clegg has sold his constituency home, giving almost Â£40,000 in profits to the taxpayer. The deputy prime minister is now renting a two-bedroom flat, having received Â£325,000 for his four-bedroom house in Sheffield. Mr Clegg said he did not want to be "holier than thou" but encouraged other MPs to "get out of the property game". The flat Mr Clegg is renting is in Stannington, west of Sheffield. His main home, which he shares with wife Miriam Gonzales and their three young sons, is in Putney, south-west London.
