Tory MP Crushes Candy

Conservative MP Nigel Mills has issued an apology for playing popular mobile puzzle game Candy Crush Saga during a Commons committee hearing. To be fair, he had the sound down and it is called a "hearing". Call it a Commons committee seeing and this never would've happened.

Nigel was caught playing the game on his tablet during a Work and Pensions Committee session on pensions. Good, because it would've been too ironic if he was doing that while they were talking about work.

I'd love to go on a rant about how this is a disgrace and how he should resign over such a lapse in judgement but, to be honest, that would make me a hypocrite. I've played on computer games when I should be working. Heck, I started the paragraph that ended with the hearing/seeing joke about an hour ago. I've spent more of the time since then on Miniclip.com.

Earlier on I played Candy Crush. I don't mean the mobile game, I just like upsetting. But we all do it, waste time when we should be working playing on our phones. It's been happening for years. I bet you wasted ages playing on Snake. I certainly played Snake. I don't mean the mobile game, I just like upsetting kids.

The MP for Amber Valley was said to have played Candy Crush Saga over a period of two-and-a-half hours. Wow. That's impressive. That's a long time to go without checking your Facebook.
