Vera Baird: Solicitor General & troughligate champagne socialist sow.

However she did manage to get tens of thousands of pounds of public money to pay for a new roof, flooring, windows and a porch at her second home.

In 2004-5 she claimed £4,309.20 in mortgage interest payments, but spent £7,916.30 on repairs, decoration and furnishings.
In subsequent years she claimed many thousands of pounds for various repairs and renovations. But in 2007-08, her expenses bill for Christmas decorations was rejected.
