MP not living in same world as constituents

IT IS imperative that MPs have an understanding of the ‘real world’ says Boston MP Mark Simmonds as he pockets £50,000 per year for advising private health firm Circle Health, and £65,738 as our MP.

I don’t know how many other sources of income Mr Simmonds may have, and I don’t care, but please, Mr Simmonds, with in excess of £115,000 a year, don’t try to tell me you are living in the same world as your constituents.
