Eric Joyce has been sentenced to a 12-month community order after admitting four counts of assault. The 51-year-old was charged following a row in the Strangers’ Bar in the House of Commons on February 22. In addition to the community order he will face a three-month curfew and is banned from entering any bars during that time. He was also fined £3000 and was ordered to pay £350 compensation to each of his victims. Mr Joyce admitted assault charges and one count of assault by beating at Westminster Magistrates Court this morning. The former soldier headbutted the Conservative MP for Pudsey, Stuart Andrew, in the Strangers’ Bar. The Falkirk MP also attacked Tory councillors Luke Mackenzie and Ben Maney, and Labour whip Phil Wilson, who represents Sedgefield. The Falkirk Herald I don't know Jocks and strong drink!
