        Socialist deputy Thomas Thevenoud was photographed playing Scrabble on his tablet during a parliamentary session. Confronted with the photos, he admitted that he had been playing the word game in the chamber.

        "I confirm... that we were trying to keep our brain cells working at three in the morning," he said. "When we manage to get 102 points at three in the morning, I wouldn't say we are proud of our achievements but it does reassure us somewhat," he added.

        One of his colleagues, who was caught updating his blog during a session, suggested that the inefficiency of the French system was behind the uptake in online distractions. "The English can vote on marriage for all in just two days while we take ten days over nothing," he said, denouncing the French system's "endless amendments" and "pointless discussions".

        That reminds me of the case of a Romanian senator who was caught watching porn on his laptop during a parliamentary session.

        What do you think about these "public servants"? Is it OK to play Scrabble during a parliamentary session, knowing that the tax payers are paying for your salary, your car and so on?

        No I don't think it's ok at all but then I've heard the ramblings in our Houses of Parliament and I'm sure they are driven to it.

        Absolutely not! They are way overpaid here and they don't even have enough decency to show up for a scheduled session. I don't have to say anything else, it's a disgrace!

        Knowing that you're paying someone who is goofing off is enough to make anyone angry but sometimes meetings are so boring and are repetitious. I'm not mad at him.
