Distraction technique

The Norwegian prime minister Erna Solberg has been busted playing Pokemon Go during a parliamentary debate. It's the sort of behaviour that trivialises the role and politics more generally, and sticks two fingers up to the electorate (especially given that she seems unrepentant and has merely laughed it off) - but let's face it, it's nowhere near as offensive as some of the things our own elected officials have been doing (and saying) recently. Someone please introduce Theresa May and chums to the addictive joys of mobile gaming before it's too late...
