Several farmers I know are millionaires , APG. Are you not?
Probably, but not through farming -that's more of a hobby. You have to admit though that the harder one works does not necessarily mean the richer one gets.

Sir Geoffrey Cox, MP, QC is a highly capable Queens Counsel who is able to command large fees for his legal work. Personally I would rather somebody like him represented me in Westminster than a career politician who has done nothing other than climbed the greasy pole in a Parliamentary Party and who would be largely unemployable in anything more useful.

As well as that, he has represented his constituency in Devon since 2005 and since then they have had four opportunities to replace him with somebody they believe more suitable. But they haven't. In the last two General Elections he has polled 56% and 60% of the votes cast. So he must be doing something right.

Mr Mamood, the member for Birmingham Percy Barr, is the only Labour MP currently receiving payment for consultancy work.
Although not a current Labour frontbencher, he did work as the shadow foreign secretary until April, when he resigned.
He works for the Policy Exchange think tank, an influential right-wing organisation based in London.
The MP earns roughly £25,000 a year on top of his Commons salary for up to 180 hours of work.
This perhaps is more acceptable but its still 'the rich getting richer' by your defanition gulliver
