Gordon Brown hasn't really been taking his job as an MP particularly seriously since he stood down as Prime Minister almost a year ago. He has been seen in Westminster only rarely and has hardly been in the Commons chamber at all.
Last week it came to light that he was sniffing around for a position at the IMF, rather comic considering his abysmal handling of the UK economy. Now we hear the news that he is to take up a Chairmanship role at the World Economic Forum. There isn't anything inherently wrong with politicians having outside interests but it is clear that Gordon Brown's outside interests are becoming his only interest.
If Brown wants to become an international financial figure, best of luck to him, but he shouldn't be pocketing his MP's salary while he's attempting to do it.
