It all makes sense now. Sol Campbell, vocal in his hatred of the mansion tax last month, has put his mansion up for sale at £25 million.

Campbell and his wife, Fiona, want £25m for their house

Campbell's Cheyne Walk townhouse has gone up for sale well ahead of next year's general election, which should help him offset a hefty bill if Labour are re-elected. Ed Miliband's flagship plan is to impose a mansion tax on properties worth £2m or more in the UK.

The six-floor 7,247 square foot Thameside residence includes a 45-foot long garden, seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms and four reception rooms.

If you don't fancy buying Sol's digs, you can rent it for £15,000 a week, which is a considerable drop from the £75,000 it was marketed to tenants during the 2012 Olympics.

Renovated in 2008, Campbell's wife, Fiona Barratt-Campbell, said in 2012 "the entertaining space on the first floor with views of the river and Albert Bridge [is] beautiful when it is lit up at night."
