The former attorney general reportedly made more than £ 5.5 million from his lofty legal career as a MP, with local voters asking if they were being neglected
Under fire, Conservative MP Sir Geoffrey Cox has left a pile of constituency posts unread while he works his second lucrative legal job from the sunny tax haven of Mauritius.
Sir Geoffrey, who reportedly made more than 5.5 million
Local voters told the story I they rarely see their MPs in town, even though his constituency is only a ten-minute drive from his office.
Although his office insists that he “has held numerous constituency meetings and operations since September,” the sight of his MP mailbag left unattended while it remains thousands of miles away in Ocena, India will lead to further questions as to whether Sir Geoffrey got his lucrative second job in front of his voters.
On Friday I revealed how other Conservative MPs had accused Sir Geoffrey of being a “part-time” MP.
Voters in his constituency also confirmed that he is a rare sight in his constituency.
A member of the Tavistock Concervative Club who did not want to be named said, “To be honest, my friend, he doesn’t have to show his face here. Here a Dartmoor pony could be chosen for the Tories. That would probably make more effort to meet the locals as well. ”
Marion and William Lake both voted for Sir Geoffrey in the 2019 election.
“We’ve been here since 1977 and have never seen him,” said Mr. Lake. “What he does with his second job may not be illegal, but it is immoral.”
“It doesn’t look good,” added Ms. Lake. “He’s not very good at taking care of us because he’s taking care of himself.”
