Labour Bill Punch Drunk MP £3,000

Banned from pubs, tales of schoolgirl lovers and a conviction for assault in the Strangers’ bar – and now Eric Joyce could be another £3,000 out of pocket. This time it isn’t a judge demanding he cough up, it is his own Labour CLP in Falkirk. They want Joyce to refund the £3,000 they gave him in election expenses:

“He says the reason for not resigning as an MP is because he was elected personally, not the Labour Party. If that’s the case we want our money back.”

If he doesn’t pay they say they will sue. Eric Joyce is spending more time in court than in parliament these days…

    It puts Plebgate into perspective – odious though Mitchell is.

        Technically, Joyce is right. People vote for the person (they have no choice, that is how elections work in the UK).

        Good to know his local party wants srid of him though. But why did they select the cnut in the first place?

          Yes, ‘technically’ he is right. So, the party is even less secure because Joyce didn’t deceive them. They gave him money as ‘their’ candidate at the time; as most local parties do.

          They have no chance of recovering this money.

          • What kind of PR are the Tories running.

            Joyce is a disgrace, Abbott the Hypo going to Venezuela, and the discredited Burnham, Byrne, Vaz, Watson, etc spouting easily provable lies

            Despite massively easy targets lined up everyday by the biggest bunch of incompetents ever to run this country, the coalition seem more focused on the column inches in their pants.

      Being a MP is about representing your community and serving your community. So MPs should be paid the average income in their community.

      MP’s shouldn’t be made ministers either, experts in the fields should be made ministers.

      If they want to make money they shouldn’t becoming MPs.

      You will understand that Joyce’s conduct is wholly attributable to the stress brought on by his workload as an MP. It’s nothing to do with his being an odious thug who can’t take his ale.

        Quite. Before he became an MP he was a paragon of moderation and probity.

        Oh, wait, no he wasn’t. He was a shit back then as well.

          Indeed. I was referring to the defence offered by one of his back bench colleagues at the time – I forget which one, usual anonymous lobby fodder – who seemed to be claiming that boozy Eric was almost blameless.

      Eric has done the decent and honourable thing just like me. We might both be teen fondlers but Eric refusing to resign is just taking a leaf out of my book. The Portsmouth LibDems dare not sue me because they know my boys will be calling on them if they do. Boaz.

    Joyce is being disingenuous with his claim that it was he personally, and not the party that was voted into Parliament. In many strong Labour constituencies you could put a red rosette on a turd, and they would still vote for it.

    Come to think of it, they frequently do!

    This guy is a total scumbag ?!
    In school he assaulted two teachers one of them was pregnant.
    Joined the army and spent his entire time gaining ( freebie) degrees.
    Resigned from the army as he was about to be sacked. ( tried to get his CO prosecuted for assaulting him as a parting shot).
    Has been forced to resign from several parliamentary “jobs”
    Very seldom seen in his constituency( Congo is his favourite jaunt)
    Prosecuted for drink driving ( point blank refused the threathalyser)
    Assaulted several MP’s in his usual drunken state.
    Resisted police arrest (which was brushed under the carpet).
    Caused criminal damage ( no further action).
    Cut off his electronic tag And gave a contemptable BS charity excuse whilst others would have been jailed.
    Had an affair with a barely legal intern and once again came out with a load of BS to cover his scumbag as s.
    Had two offices( one was rented thru his best mate) ?! Put signage up with his name that was approx 20m long, looked ridiculous, council told him to remove it- no tax payers cost spared.
    Oh, and lets not forget that he is the most expensive MP in the country ( in excess of £250k per annum).
    Not content with his expenses claims he “flipped” his house for good measure.
    Yes folks, the constituents of Falkirk got what they wished for ?!!!b

      the problem is that he has a large majority so unseating him is going to be a problem. Also if the next election os going to be a tight one labour will stick with the devil they know rather than an outsider. Mind you his wikipedia entry is quite colourful for an MP.

    Tsk, tsk.

    Labour need to be careful, they shouldn’t bankrupt ‘im as that will force a by-election which they will lose to Salmonds’ Scot Nat’s.

    Rather petty though to ask for the election loot back, we might as well ask Gordo McMental Broon to re-establish our gold reserves as they were before he sold the stuff orff for a fraction of its current value, and then blew that, and all our additional pension taxes, plus the extra borrowings on so-called investment in the UK.

    Looks like he went to Vegas shoved the lot on Red, and double 00 came up.

    Labour are being so petty and spiteful, but that is in their genes, so nothing changes there then.
