MP Tessa Munt on cash for access scandal: “MPs shouldn’t have second jobs”
Monday, 23 February 2015
I heard LibDem Tessa Munt’s interview on BBC Radio 4 this evening and it must have struck a chord with just about everyone who listened.
She expressed amazement that an MP could ever have time to do another job because she didn’t have enough hours in the day to carry out her MP duties.
Hearing Malcolm Rifkind plead poverty on a salary of £60,000 plus a year and claiming this rather handsome sum needs to be supplemented to attract good quality MPs is as pathetic, as it is grasping.
If I became East Devon’s MP I would NOT take other paid work. I would dedicate myself 100 per cent to being a strong and hard-working constituency MP…..
.... How many jobs does our current MP have? And does he have the time to properly represent the people of East Devon?
