Tory MP Nadhim Zahawi, remember him? He’s the parliamentarian, one of our law makers who over claimed his MP’s expenses by almost £6,000 in 2013. Apparently, he didn’t realise he needed a separate electricity account to heat his horse riding school stables and a yard manager's mobile home – this being a private business – and charged it all to the taxpayer.
Of course being a Tory MP he is immune from punishment. Just pay back the money and continue promoting austerity policies that kill people.
