An MP forced out of the Labour party after a drunken brawl in a Commons bar was arrested again last night in similar circumstances.
A dozen police officers were called to a fracas at the Sports and Social bar in the Houses of Parliament last night, where Eric Joyce was at a karaoke night.
The MP for Falkirk, who now serves as an independent, was reportedly wrestled to the ground by officers in front of onlookers and loaded into a police van.
The 52-year-old former soldier was arrested last February over a brawl at the nearby Strangersâ€™ bar in Parliament where he headbutted Tory MP Stuart Andrew.
He pleaded guilty to four counts of common assault and was fined Â£3,000 by magistrates.
Last night onlookers at the Sports and Social said Mr Joyce brought two officers to the ground and knocked anotherâ€™s hat off.
It is believed he arrived at the venue earlier in the evening after drinking in a Westminster pub with one of his staff.
I wonder what would happen if an Police officer had done this? You know…get drunk on police premises, start a fight and get arrested? AGAIN!
Sacked. No pension. TTFN.
What will happen to him I wonder?
I wait with interest…for the usual ‘apology’ for being caught…
