Conservative MP Guy Opperman wrongly claimed on Thursday afternoon that Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli had entered the House of Commons in London to watch the Drug Policy debate.
This was, despite Balotelli training as normal with Liverpool at Melwood training ground ahead of their trip to Newcastle United.
In his time at Manchester City Balotelli was often the subject of many stories which he later explained to be false (see video interview with Noel Gallagher below).
Last RT: that's how daft the attention on Mario Balotelli has become. Balotelli is currently training at Melwood, nowhere near Westminster.

Here’s Balotelli actually in training on Thursday afternoon.
