Tory MP Johnny Mercer has landed a sec­ond job at a cy­ber-se­cu­rity firm earn­ing £85,000 a year for work­ing 20 hours a month. What other pub­lic sec­tor worker who had so much re­spon­si­bil­ity they were paid £77,379 plus ex­penses would be able to fit in an­other job, on more money?

The an­swer is some­one whose sum­mer re­cess, which be­gan on July 20 (and was in­ter­rupted for a week) ended this Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 9. An MP, that’s who. One who’s seen their salaries rise above in­fla­tion since the 2008 crash they failed to spot com­ing, while other pub­lic sec­tor pay has flat­lined. Still why not take on an ex­tra job. Af­ter all, child poverty, Brexit, global warm­ing and the hous­ing, men­tal health and el­derly care crises have all been sorted. So there’s plenty of time for a nice lit­tle earner, eh?
