Deputy PM encourages other MPs to “get out of the property game”

Nick Clegg gives house sale profits to taxpayer

Nick Clegg has sold his constituency home, giving almost £40,000 in profits to the taxpayer. The deputy prime minister is now renting a two-bedroom flat, having received £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.

  • Lets not be to judgmental here. He’s pointing a way to whoever will listen and while he is still an utter c0ck, his sentiment is commendable.
