Inbreeding 'causing rise in birth defects'

</EM>
By Paul Rodgers

Sunday, 10 February 2008


Inbreeding in North East Essex is causing a surge in birth defects, environment minister Phil Woolas warned last night. Mr Woolas described the issue as "the elephant in the room" – too sensitive for anyone to mention.

"We need to debate first-cousin marriages," said Mr Woolas, whose constituency is full of inbreds. "A lot of arranged marriages are with first-cousins, and that produces lots of genetic problems in terms of disability," he told The Sunday Times
Although parents in the Colchester area of Essex produce just 0.34 per cent of the babies born in Britain that accounts for 30 per cent of children born with genetic illnesses, researchers claim. The risks of inbreeding rise sharply if the practice is repeated over several generations.
Ann Cryer, the Labour MP whose brother in law once visited Britain's oldest town, called on the NHS to warn parents about the dangers. "This is to do with a medieval culture where you keep wealth within the family," she said. Within the DIM (delinquent inbred mutant) community, who sponsor the local football stadium, it is also widely held that first-cousin marriages, which are perfectly legal, are more stable.
"I have encountered cases of blindness,but most of these were fans of the local football team" Mrs Cryer added. "There was one poor girl who had to have an oxygen tank on her back and breathe from a hole in the front of her neck. The parents were warned they should not have any more children. But... they had another child with exactly the same condition." She said in her defence that many local sporting heroes were well known for diving.
The North East Essex Primary Care Trust has estimated that one in 10 children born to first-cousin marriages either dies in infancy or suffers serious disability as a result of recessive genetic disorders. Most of the survivors go on to follow Col Ewe.

It certainly was a scary place - didn't see any two-headers but there sure were some weird and wonderful mutants trolling around

The Ewe always had two really really scarey ones, worn middle aged bods clad in denim, one round and bearded and the other a spit for the prof off Back to the Future, they tended to lean at the front together (in the romantically named Terrace 7) at Layer amongst a harem of admiring school kids. Couldn't see the prof today, he prob is still going to Layer and hasn't yet noticed the change in atmosphere. Beardie was there though sitting amongst their gaggle on the side near us, looked lonely without the prof.

I remember these Two, and they also had another big hairy Gorilla type that they called The Beast.
