PART-time MPs lining their pockets with lucrative second jobs at the expense of voters must be punished, Boris Johnson warned last night.

After a week-long sleaze row from hell the PM finally came down hard on colleagues making money on the side while neglecting their “primary” day jobs.

It’s a veiled slap-down of Tory bigwig Sir Geoffrey Cox who raked in £400,000 as a barrister but barely turned up to Parliament.

The former Attorney General insists he’s not broken any rules and cleared his work for the British Virgin Isles government with Chief Whip Mark Spencer.
