Former chancellor George Osborne is making a lot of money on the side, which this article details. Use this example when writing about the recruitment function of parliament.

Similarly, use this example in a question about representative democracy - our representatives do not always have our own interests in mind! The same argument can be made when it comes to criticising political parties.
