An MP’s job is full-time

Why does our MP Simon Reevell think it is okay to earn a supplementary salary from FOUR other paymasters in 2011?

His one and only boss should be the people who elected him to represent Dewsbury and Mirfield. That’s a job which should have his whole attention. How has he come to the conclusion that the task of being my MP (at £65,000 a year) affords him enough spare time to fit in four other paymasters? Whenever the MP is challenged with a legitimate question all he does is come out with the same tired old political rhetoric. He can’t blame Labour for this one. They didn’t make him take on this myriad of extra jobs did they?
