BuzzFeed contributor Solomon Hughes in his useful trawl through the Register of MP’s interests, found that in the April 2014 edition Baldry declared that last month he was appointed Associate Director of Werner Capital, which offers property advice to “ultra high net worth” individuals. The firm specialises in advising wealthy overseas investors on how to buy luxury property in London and with Tony’s other outside interests and his salary as an MP, he racks up an impressive £280,000 a year.

Baldry is unrepentant and said, “I have been in the House of Commons for over 30 years and with the exception of the eight years when I was a minister I have always had outside interests.”

“So there would be absolutely no scintilla of a doubt on this matter, at the last general election I made it very clear on my election address that I had outside interests and would continue to maintain outside interests if I were re-elected to parliament,” he added.
