I doubt these exposes will make any difference but it is amazing how many politicians world wide have been exposed

One I particularly noticed was Tony Blair avoiding 312000 in Stamp duty we all have to pay it so why should a prime minister not !

anybody else picked up on any ?

I think it's shameful that foreign folks, and local folks for that matter, can avoid stamp duty on these crazy-priced properties.

The greed of some people is sickening.

the son of one of my drivers has just bought a one bedroom for £65000 but 45% shared equity so a 1 bed round our way is £145000 !!

Melton Mowbray must be the Blackpool of the east midlands !

I've just had to pay £10,000 stamp duty, one lot for a house purchase down south for £300K then another lump on a property up north.
