Money for Nothing from your House for Free
MPs have jointly made more than Â£1 million by selling their second homes, and under parliamentary rules they are entitled to keep the money. Nick Clegg, the Deputy Prime Minister, handed all the profit he made on the sale of his second home to House of Commons authorities in 2011. Title inspired by Dire Straits "Money for Nothing" a hit track from their 1985 album Brothers in Arms.
