Moonlighting, Ctd

Once again it looks like Trademe Trev has been moonlighting overseas and giving advice to some pommy bastards:

Eric Joyce, the Labour MP for Falkirk, has been arrested after a fracas in a bar at the House of Commons, it is understood.

Police were called to the House of Commons bar, believed to be Stranger’s Bar, just before 11pm last night.

Mr Joyce, 51, was arrested on suspicion of assault and taken to a police station in central London. Today he was suspended from the Labour party.

It was claimed Mr Joyce “started lashing out” at people in the bar, which is for MPs and their guests. One of his victims was reported to be Conservative MP Stuart Andrew while he was also alleged to have hit another Labour MP.

A witness told PoliticsHome that Mr Joyce allegedly pushed a Conservative member before punching others at the back of the bar.

The brawl was believed to have started after Mr Joyce, who has been convicted of drink-driving, apparently complained the bar was “full of Tories”.

Certainly sounds like he has.
