He has a 57-year-old boiler installed at the Clapham home he has been sharing with his wife of 26 years - Vicky Pryce. It is believed to be a "FridgidAire" model which often lives up to its name after several years of usage and becomes icy to the touch.
And he has a 44-year-old boiler at the Eastleigh constituency he is using for love trysts with his lesbian mistress - Carina Trimingham. That boiler is believed to be a slightly newer model that operates off AC/DC power.
It may be a "Dyke-son" - designed by British design whiz Sir James Dyke-son - who also pioneered the concept of not having to get replacement bags for appliances that do a lot of sucking.

Meanwhile his expenses bill also included charges for some mastic work, a bit of grouting, some overhauling, applying paint to cover up ugly cracks, something brassy that had to be fixed and an investigation into a "rad" (an abbreviation for "radical") "in the kitchen which isn't working".
A lot of baby-boomer men find that the radical they installed in their kitchen in the 1980s starts to pack up after a few years and refuses to work.
