“They probably thought, “This bloke is going mental.” At that point, I saw red. I thumped them with my fist and my head – not with massive viciousness, just enough to sting them…”
A few weeks ago a Labour member of parliament got drunk and went a bit amazingly bonkers in a bar (located inside the House of Commons!) and head-butted and beat up three Conservatives and accidentally one of his own Labour colleagues. It took about eight policemen sitting on him to end the incident.
But the full story of Eric Joyce is ever so much richer; these were just the latest incidents in a long career of amazing “biffing,” as the ex-Army major calls it in a largely unapologetic rundown of his history of brawling. Joyce is such a raging, er… rage case that if he didn’t exist, Marvel comics might have invented him. (Amusingly, he’s been banned from all pubs for three months.) Hollywood should get this guy’s number. Or maybe he should be on “The Apprentice.”
