What does ex Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne MP and Wokingham’s MP John Redwood have in common? Answer, they both think its acceptable to have several jobs as well as their job of being a full time Member of Parliament.

John Redwood has at least three roles outside Parliament that can take him up to nearly two days of his normal working week. George Osborne the new Editor of the daily newspaper, the London Evening Standard is now in a similar position.

The nature of these jobs in addition to their Parliamentary duties, means they have to be performed Monday to Friday when surely they should be concentrating on being MPs. I don’t think these extra roles can just be done at the weekends.

Do the residents of Wokingham think their MP should have these extra jobs?
