Bhutan MPs in computer game ban

Parliament in Bhutan has banned its members from bringing laptops to work – to stop them playing computer games.

Sales of desktops and laptops have gone up by about 50%-60% over the past five years, according to electronic retailers.One reason for that is the growing popularity of the internet, which came to Bhutan just nine years ago – around the same time as television.In a country where open criticism of the elite was unexpected, the anonymity of the web has given quite a few people the opportunity to express their opinions freely.
