A Tory MP has been arrested on suspicion of assaulting his wife.
Croydon Central MP Andrew Pelling was questioned by police after Lucy, 26, his wife of less than a year, called the police.
The couple married last November after starting their relationship while Mr Pelling was still married to his first wife, with whom he has three children.
Mr Pelling, 48, who is also a London Assembly member for Croydon and Sutton, was taken to a south London police station on Tuesday and released on bail without being charged.
He is due to return to a police station on 1 October.
Of course, we should remember that he has not yet been charged, still less convicted. All that we know for certain is that he is an adulterous scumbag, with a penchant for wasting parliamentary time and public money with early day motions about the dogs of minor celebrity chefs. So, he's a bit of a shit, but not necessarily a criminal one.
Incidentally, the verdict in Miranda Grell's case is due in tomorrow. Those "mainstream" politicians, eh? Beacons of respectability, every last one of them!
