…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”.
Peaceful revolution is supposed to be good for your karma and all, but sometimes I wonder if the whole idea is just about getting us to disarm ourselves so that the Powers That Be can oppress us more effectively – notice how THEY are not giving up their weapons. If true, then maybe violence IS the answer.
Eric Joyce is a punk-ass MP and if I were a UK citizen I would totally vote for him. Some guy from the UK needs to marry me so we can make this happen.
Headbutting Tories = epic WIN.
(Why the Scotland tag? Richard Jobson tweeted that Eric Joyce should be the new PM of Scotland. I so agree)
