Politicians love social media, they really do.
But, quite frankly, it’s getting a bit awkward.
They started on Facebook and Twitter, relentlessly updating their feeds from inside the House of Commons.
And it seems they’ve found a new favourite. Enter Instagram.
Once the playground of show-offs boasting about their picture perfect lives, the photo-sharing platform has now been infiltrated by the Westminster bubble.
From embarrassing group photos to stage-managed poses, it’s all become too painful to watch.
