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.
Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli has popped in to Commons Gallery to watch the Drug Policy debate -wearing sharp suit, pink shirt &a poppy

All very well and good (if extremely surprising), only it wasn't the 24-year-old Liverpool striker at all.
Mario Balotelli is here at Melwood, not in the House of Commons! #LFC

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.
