Diane Abbott earned £100,000 for BBC appearances

Shadow home secretary Diane Abbot has been paid a total of £110,000 by the BBC for her appearances on the show ‘This Week’, dating back to 2003.

The MP for Hackney and Stoke Newington also makes thousands of pounds giving speeches, for example:

£4000 for speaking on a ‘Thomson Reuters Panel’ after the last election.

£2,000 for speaking at a ‘Citywealth Power Women Lunch’

£2500 for speaking at a ‘Women in Politics event’

£2000 for speaking at a ‘Black History’ event.

The salary for an MP is £75,000, so being paid for giving talks is a nice way to earn some extra cash.
