The busy life of David Miliband

Your South Shields MP is now a “professional” speaker

In addition to his role as South Shields MP, the former Foreign Secretary David Miliband is now a well paid director of Sunderland Football Club, a “volunteer” part-time school teacher, and also a paid after dinner speaker, and on 21 December 2010, The Office of David Miliband Limited was formed with Miliband and his wife Louise as directors. I wonder which Office of Tony Blair Ltd gave him that idea?

The business of an MP, for some, appears to be just as lucrative after losing a well paid job, as it was before the event (and yes, I am aware of MPs from other parties and constituencies that fall into the same category).

I sometimes wonder if MPs should get paid pro -rata according to the hours they put into their constituency work!

Miliband on what he plans to do for Sunderland AFC
