David Davis will get paid in 20 hours what takes most people over two years to earn – Jon Trickett

Jon Trickett MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office, responding to the disclosure from David Davis for a new job at J.C. Bamford Excavators Limited (JCB), said:

“What David Davis will get paid in 20 hours takes most people over two years to earn. But then again, under the Tories, it’s one set of rules for the few and another for the many.

“Most people when reading this will no doubt think “snouts in the trough”, and this is exactly why Labour has repeatedly warned of the damage to the reputation of Parliament caused by arrangements like this and why they need to stop.”
