Shame on MPs who ditch constituents to do second job
Seems many of our MPs are still filling their boots while in public office, despite the expenses scandal of 2009.
What a surprise. Said no one. Ever.
One in five of our elected representatives at Westminster manage to hold down a second job.
Yes, 119 of them have got nice little earners on the side, raking in an average of £28,000 in addition to their £77,000 Commons salary. Plus expenses. Don’t forget those expenses. They never do.
I’d have thought the job of an MP is a full-time one, occupying work time and intellectual space, all for the good of the constituents.
So how on earth have so many professional politicians found the time to earn more than the UK average salary by doing something else at the same time?
Voters have been short-changed too long. One job, one focus, one pay packet.
