Andrew Scheer, Speaker of the Canadian House of Commons was in the Strangers Bar on the night Eric Joyce allegedly head butted a Conservative MP.
We are told he left before the brawl began.
Just as well.
Imagine the headlines if he had been caught up in the melee.
The Toronto Star colourfully observes
While visiting the Mother of all Parliaments in London, the Speaker of the Canadian House of Commons, Andrew Scheer, just missed the mother of all punch-ups between two British MPs.
Can’t recall ever seeing a fight in the Strangers bar myself but, then again, in my day very few Conservative MPs ventured in.
They were upstairs in the Smoking Room where the leather upholstery was more to their liking.
