From the Herald, that bastion of socialist values, today:
Tories Alexander Burnett, Donald Cameron, Finlay Carson, Sandesh Gulhane, Jamie Halcro Johnston, Liam Kerr and Edward Mountain all had second jobs registered on their interests as of November 1.
SNP MSP Michelle Thomson, who was elected to Holyrood in May, is a “sole trader of Thomson Holdings”, a property investment company according to her register of interests Ms Thomson received between £10,000 and £15,000 for the role per year, and will spend one hour per month working in the job.
She is also a director of a property management company, Senza Rit Ltd – with her register of interests adding she would “expect to receive remuneration of between £1,001 and £2,000 per annum in the form of life cover” adding “I do not play an active role in running the business”https://www.heraldscotland.com/politics/19716432.labour-claims-8-msps-second-jobs-using-holyrood-as-part-time-hobby/
Wow! I would never have guessed, after last week’s multiple jobs sleaze scandal in Westminster, that ‘our’ wee Tories would find being an MSP not enough to fill their days.
It must have been such a relief to find Michelle Thomson and do her first though I note she’s not exactly overworked to get 10 to 17K from businesses she has a share in.
In see they wheeled in Neil Bibby to get all self-righteous and not his millionaire boss and share-holder in his mum’s low-paying business, Anas Sarwar. He gets a cut for zero hours like a real socialist should.
