Anorak | Eric Joyce MP banned from every pub in Britain

Eric Joyce MP banned from every pub in Britain

by | 9th, March 2012

ERIC Joyce MP has been appearing at Westminster Magistrates Court in London. He has been found guilty of head-butting a Tory rival in a House of Commons bar brawl. Conservative MP for Pudsey, Stuart Andrew, was injured during a rumpus in the Strangers’ Bar.

Joyce has escaped a custodial sentence, being handed to a 12-month community order, fined £3,000, ordered to pay £1,400 in compensation, barred from any pub for 3 months and has a Fri-Sun curfew from 8pm-4am.

Joyce remains an MP.

MPs are only disbarred by serving more than a year in jail. And you have to catch them first…
