I find this governments incompetence hard to understand. Having made a fool of himself, yet again, he tries to put through a change that will affect less than 10 MP’s regarding second jobs. He had an opportunity to say that he got the Patterson case wrong but now was going to show leadership with new rules to re-establish public confidence in the legislature. Instead of which there is a wishy washy statement which basically states that second jobs and lobbying is ok, as long as the time spent doing it is hidden. Most of these ‘jobs’ are undefinable by time – no tachograph on a computer to measure zoom meetings or email exchanges.
