FORMER Labour deputy leader Tom Watson, who supported a VIP sex ring fantasist, has picked up an estimated £200,000 since leaving Westminster.
The ex-minister has taken on several high-powered jobs since stepping down as an MP in December 2019.
On an online CV, he even boasts of being an “instrument for good”. He says he is a “born campaigner with a reputation for creativity and counter-intuitive thinking”.
Watson is chair of UK Music, where he is said to be paid around £50,000.
He is also on a retainer for Flutter Entertainment, which owns Paddy Power, worth up to £100,000.
Campaigner Daniel Janner QC said: “I am staggered and hurt.
“His claim of being a knight in shining armour does not sit well with his high earnings.
“He used his ‘creativity’ and considerable influence to peddle false claims.”
