MPs earn £65,738 from their parliamentary jobs and while they claim to spend about 70-80 hours a week on their parliamentary duties, over 20 have declared earnings over £100,000 from other jobs.
I imagine that this is how most of them feel.
But just how are they making this money?
1. There's loads of money in giving speeches, apparently.
(And yes, that is Gordon Brown hanging out with JLS).
He received £60,679.90 for giving a speech to the Abu Dhabi Education Council. Must have been tough..
Don't ask him about it though, it's a touchy subject.
2. Working as a barrister is pretty rewarding, too.
Stephen Phillips, MP for Sleaford and North Hykeham declared over £740,000 while Geoffrey Cox, MP for Torridge and West Devon, also declared an earning of £417,000.
Phillip's' justification is pretty incredible. He told the Guardian that since he's not a minister, being a barrister benefits his constituents as it "enables me to keep a foot in the real world".
