Clegg leads by example

Today's Sheffield Star reports that Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg is leading by example by selling his old Sheffield constituency home and giving the £38,750 profit to the taxpayer.

They say that although he would have been allowed to keep the money under current rules, Mr. Clegg wanted to “lead by example”. He said that he hoped other MPs will follow suit as they are forced to sell second homes and rent properties instead. The new regulations come in later this year.
