Letter to Julian Lewis from Martin Bell OBE, anti-sleaze campaigner and author of A Very British Revolution: The Expenses Scandal and How to Save our Democracy – 9 October 2009

"It is my view that in your expense claims you have acted throughout with absolute propriety and you may feel free to quote this judgement ... Unlike certain others, you come out of the episode of MPs' expenses as a rather admirable character."
