Parliament and Democracy: Osborne's jobs list

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. Could it demonstrate how MPs have a variety of interests, or does it show that they treat their job as MP with disdain? 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.
