MPs keep it in the family too

Have your say

GrahamE Maxwell, the Chief Constable of North Yorkshire, has only done what most of us would do – help a family member get a job.

They would still have to pass the entrance test to become a police officer.

However MPs do this all the time: they employ family members, often doing very little work, nor are most of them qualified to do the job.

We have only to look at one MP who employed his son to do work for him whilst in university.

Often MPs employ their wives – no interview, no qualifications, they simply get the job.

Where else in the public sector can you employ your wife who may not be qualified or had an interview?
