MP Caught on Tape Playing Candy Crush During Committee Meeting

By Gary Cutlack on at

Tory MP Nigel Mills has been rumbled using his taxpayer-purchased parliamentary iPad to lessen the tedium of select committee meetings by doing some grinding in Candy Crush Saga, seemingly ignoring his colleagues in the works and pensions committee to hammer away at the important issue of fruit alignment.

Mills owned up, seeing as The Sun caught him doing it on video, saying: "There was a bit of the meeting that I wasn't focusing on and I probably had a game or two. I shouldn't do it but if you check the meeting I would say I was fully engaged in asking questions that I thought were particularly important."
