Labour MP Eric Joyce convicted of assaulting two teenagers

Soon to be ex-Labour MP, Eric Joyce, has been convicted of assaulting two teenage boys.

The outgoing MP for Falkirk, former Major in the Army and former Judo player assaulted the boys in a shop in London and came up with a story about how they were aggressive and intimidating. He even boasted about his "citizens arrest" on his website.

Joyce's moral compass is a little dubious to say the least and he certainly has no qualms about resorting to violence when the few braincells he hasn't pickled in taxpayer-subsidised booze are a bit over-stretched. He was convicted of drink driving in 2010, assaulted six MPs in the Commons bar in 2012, admitted to having an affair with a 17 year old schoolgirl the following month, cut his electronic tag off later in 2012, was arrested for ABH in the Commons resulting in him being banned indefinitely from all Commons bars in 2013, racially abused a worker in Edinburgh airport in May 2014 and then assaulted these boys in October 2014.

Just imagine the headlines if he was a UKIP MP. Every UKIP support would be an alcoholic, racist, child beating thug.
