Making outside work pay.

Remember how we were all told by David Miliband after he lost the Labour Leadership to younger brother Red Ed that he would be concentrating on being a good constituency MP?

Well, word has it that in the last year David spoke just 15 times in the House of Commons compared to an average of 34 and took part in just 46% of divisions compared to the average of 75%.

What happened? Look no further than his earnings outside Parliament which topped over £500,000.
