According to House of Commons records, Cheltenham's Tory MP declared £16,293 of earnings from his second job doing legal work between August and November last year – a period of just four months. For that money he worked 97 hours as a barrister, the equivalent of almost a day a week over the period.

Can the poor soul really not manage on his £77,000 a year MP's salary?
