Liberal Democrats drag Chelsea star into ID card debate

It’s a f***ing disgrace!

Liberal Democrat shadow home secretary Chris Huhne has put Didier Drogba at the centre of immigration policy. The politician name-checked the Chelsea striker as he responded to Home Office plans that skilled migrants will have to apply an identity card when their current visa expires. That includes footballers.

Huhne said: “Making Didier Drogba carry a piece of plastic to prove his identity is a waste of taxpayer’s money.”

Quite right too – they should be issued with collectible stickers of themselves instead.
