MSP milks the system

This emerges from the publication of all MSP's expenses. We learn one MSP was keen to do all he could to fulfill the national stereotype:
"Jamie Stone, the Liberal Democrat MSP for Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross, was generous enough to buy a 42p pint of milk for his secretary on several occasions - but then he claimed it back from the taxpayer.

Mr Stone also demanded that the parliament reimburse him £4.62 for a pack of toilet rolls. But he only did this once, presumably because he thought this would last his constituency staff for the whole six months."

From Aberdeen, is he?
