Scrutiny over second jobs causes outrage – as MPs forced to focus on being MPs

Features, Politics, UK Politics

MPs are to face greater scrutiny over second jobs – after it was found that almost one in five have regular, paid commitments outside parliament.

The inquiry was prompted by George Osborne taking on the editorship of the evening standard last year while still a backbench MP – but not all MPs have been making ends meet in such glamorous ways.

Michael Gove’s been tutoring struggling kids. That may have to end.

Boris Johnson’s been moonlighting as a chef in a Hounslow chicken shop. That may have to end.

And Jeremy Hunt’s been busy trying to take over the world. Sadly, that’s never going to end.
