Eric Joyce arrested after attacking Tories in Commons bar

Labour MP Eric Joyce was arrested last night after allegations of an assault in a House of Commons bar.

Stuart Andrew, Tory MP for Pudsey, was reportedly head-butted and punched in the Strangers Bar, a Commons bar reserved for MPs and their guests. Joyce then started punching other Conservative members seated at the back of the bar. Drinks were also allegedly thrown over some bar patrons.

Joyce has been suspended from the Labour Party until the completion of a police investigation, however he remains MP for Falkirk.

Suspended? For lashing out at Conservatives?! Make him leader of the Labour party, for Christ’s sake!
