The Falkirk Herald today calls on disgraced MP Eric Joyce to resign.

In an open letter, Scotland’s biggest-selling local paper gives a clear message to the controversial politician.

It reads: “Dear Eric,

“In more than 10 years as MP for Falkirk, you have consistently hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons.

“You retained enough support to be re-elected two years ago but the latest disgraceful episode in a House of Commons bar is a step too far.

“Your conviction for assault brought shame not only on yourself but on the people of Falkirk.

“It is apparent to us that you have lost the respect of many members of the public and it is our view that you are no longer a fit person to represent this constituency.

“We call on you to resign immediately and seek whatever help you need to tackle the issues that have led to this sorry situation.”
