UK deputy PM says Russia should not host World Cup

Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron (L) and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg address a press conference at 10 Downing Street in London on July 10, 2014British Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg joined calls on Sunday for Russia to be stripped of the World Cup in 2018 following the shooting down of flight MH17 over Ukraine. The Liberal Democrat leader, whose party is the junior partner in Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron’s coalition government, said sporting events should be part of a new package of EU sanctions against Moscow. “You can’t have this — the beautiful game — marred by the ugly aggression of Russia on the Russian Ukrainian border,” Clegg told the Sunday Times newspaper. “Not only would Vladimir Putin exploit it, I think it would make the rest of the world look so weak and so insincere about our protestations about Vladimir Putin’s behaviour if we’re not prepared to pull the plug.”
