British MP Makes Extremely Awkward Mario Balotelli Mix-Up

Guy Opperman, the rather Toryishly-named Tory MP for Hexham, tweeted today that he had just seen Mario Balotelli enter the public gallery of the House of Commons to watch the debate on Drug Policy.

It was this guy, a dancer who is a full 21 years older than Balo himself, who was over 200 miles away where he lives and works. Not Guy's finest hour, one suspects.
