Parliament is back – but already some MPs are bored. One Tory backbencher was snapped glancing at his phone during the opening session in the Commons this afternoon. Yet the picture of the MP watching a clip on his mobile – which was tweeted out by Anna Soubry – raised a bigger question: what on earth was he watching?
The unnamed MP appeared to be watching a racy video on his phone, with rumours flying around about what exactly was keeping the politician so occupied. Mr S. isn’t sure – although he can’t help but think that whatever the honourable member was up to, it doesn’t look to be Parliamentary business…
Is this the first Parliament where everyone thinks they’re a winner when in fact we’re all losers except the DUP? pic.twitter.com/WArFNDMNFd

Update: It seems the MP may be a fan of showgirl art
This MP appears to be casually checking out Gordon Parks' "Showgirls Playing Chess" in the Commons.
