Jock ex-squaddie in pissed punch up shock.

First prize for unfortunate timing this week must go to former army officer, MP and well known bon viveur, Eric Joyce. The disgraced ex Labour member (now independent) was up to his old tricks in a Commons bar again last night, knocking back drinks and knocking down fellow MPs who presumably looked at him funny. This morning, as he sits in his cell nursing the hangover from hell, comes the release of a report suggesting that ex-squaddies are three times more likely to commit violent crime than your average punter. Something for Joyce to contemplate along with his bruised knuckles.
Meanwhile in "Another Place" their  Lordships  are also cutting up rough. Talk of House Of Lords catering budget reductions and the loss of the four course meal for seven and a tanner have forced the noble ones to take drastic action - slash staff wages. Envy of the world mate. Stand on me, envy of the world.
