'Adds insult to injury' if Dorries failed to declare earnings

It is absolutely right that MPs have to publicise any additional income they receive for other work. It helps constituents to make an informed judgement about their MP's performance at election time.

Mid Bedfordshire residents already have the right to feel let down after Nadine Dorries abandoned them for the jungle - but if she has failed to be straight about what she was paid for the caper, that will only add insult to injury.

At a time when politicians are again in the spotlight over their outside interests, the public expect and deserve nothing less than complete transparency.
