(2009) Liberal Democrat M.P. Menzies Campbell

Sir Menzies Campbell, the former Liberal Democrat leader, spent £10,000 of taxpayers’ money hiring an interior designer to renovate his small London flat.
The makeover included a flatscreen TV, a king-size bed and scatter cushions for his second home in Dolphin Square near Westminster.
Sir Menzies, once known as ‘moral Ming’ for his old-school rectitude, justified the large raid on the public purse on the basis that he had not used up his second homes allowance in previous years.
