There have been many accusations of MP sleaze being bandied around Parliament lately, particularly concerning second jobs.
Ed Davey is one of those who have jumped on the bandwagon. It is therefore ironic that he himself is now under investigation by the Standards Commissioner, for what he claims is an “oversight”!
Regardless of the reason for the investigation, it is factual that he has been earning huge sums of money for very little work- £19500 every three months for just 30 hours work:
One of his nice little earners is with a an investment manager that specialises in solar power. Ed Davey was of course Secretary of State for Energy & Climate Change in the Coalition.
I wonder what services he might be offering that could possibly be worth £18000 a year for effectively one week’s work?
