Brexit MEP gets E1m pa from property fund and sits on committee of economic and monetary affairs

EUobserver: Brexit Party MEPs have biggest side earnings

Article looks at side earnings of MEPs and finds that the largest are accruing to Brexit party and the Italian far right League party MEPs. Of particular concern to readers of this website is Benyamin Habib who receives around E80,000 per month from a "property fund" and sits on the committee on economic and monetary affairs, tasked to legislate on a whole range of policies. Surely nothing improper there?

Some would cite this fact as positive:" these are proven businessmen not flipping career politicians". That's not my opinion BTW.
