The tax system is the cause of the problem. If you have a second job, then you are placed on a (punitive) tax code, emergency one, I think. My missus, who worked part-time at nigh to feed my curry, beer and burping habit, was taxed ridiculously for her second job.
Mind you, that load of tossers at Westminster probably account for 3/4 of the figure quoted. The Register of Members Interests is hardly a rigorous system, with the lot of them hiding not just skeletons, but whole bloody cities worth of bones in the rcupboards with regards to secondary employment. How many have Non-Directorships in the City?? Or act as advisors to some firm or other???? Does the Inland Revenue hound them in the same way as somebody who is not in Parliament? I fear not.
