Maybe Diego will pay for a new one:
The shipping magnate who David Mills claims is the true source of the £350,000 at the centre of a bribery investigation by the Italian authorities was holed up in a London flat yesterday refusing to answer the door.

Diego Attanasio, a shipping entrepreneur with a record of bribery and corruption, surfaced at his flat as pressure grew on Mr Mills to further explain the provenance of the disputed cash at the heart of the crisis engulfing him and his wife, the culture secretary, Tessa Jowell.
Not that Mills can't afford it himself; half a million is small change in New Labour circles these days:
I kept just under £500,000 out of what was then getting on for £2m. So all that risk and cost for not very much.
