The House of Commons has issued a statement reacting angrily after the arrest of Eric Joyce at the Commons karaoke night, after he denied being drunk at the time of the incident.
"There is no way any self-respecting public official or professional in the political arena would even contemplate karaoke in a state of sobriety. To claim otherwise is quite preposterous and undermines the credibility of Parliament.
Being somewhere on the spectrum between 'a bit tiddly' and 'drunk as a Lord' is par for the course. Wrestling with policemen may be acceptale providing it is mutually consensual one does not call them 'plebs'."
