Outrage as more than 160 MPs make 42million profit selling homes YOU helped pay for

EXCLUSIVE Ten years on from the expenses scandal the Mirror reveals 160 politicians raked in profits selling properties public money helped fund

Our investigation found MPs made an average profit of 255,000 on selling their taxpayer-subsidised homes, while millions of voters struggle to even get on the housing ladder. Of the 20 who have made more than 500,000 in gross profit, 14 are Tories and six Labour.

Fourteen MPs have sold not one but two of these properties.

We found Labour MPs making an average of 193,000 profit on the sales but the Tories made twice this each, averaging 417,000.
