Eric Joyce is my new favorite person in the world

…just because we’re both mad as hell and won’t take it any more.

Shamed politician Eric Joyce admitted he was lucky to avoid jail today for brawling in a Commons bar then telling police: “You can’t touch me, I’m an MP.”

The Labour MP walked away from court with a fine and pub banning order after headbutting Tory rivals Stuart Andrew and Ben Maney in a drunken frenzy.

He also punched Tory councillor Luke Mackenzie and Labour whip Phillip Wilson while calling officers “c****”.

After leaving Mr Andrew with a bloodied nose, “possessed” Joyce told police: “He deserved it.”

Joyce, who accepted he was “hammered” on red wine during the brawl, launched into a frenzied attack after shouting that the Strangers’ Bar “was full of f****** Tories”.

(Why the Scotland tag?  Richard Jobson tweeted that Eric Joyce should be the new PM of Scotland.  I so agree)

The train did not run at the hour I had to go, so I had to hitchhike, twice.
