Dr Ian Gibson, MP for Norwich North
Something that we Suffolk boys have known for some time, our Norfolk 'brethren' have officially been accused of inbreeding by one of their own.
The Labour MP for Norwich, Dr Ian Gibson, who incidentally has a PhD in genetics, was commenting on research showing that Norfolk had more than double the number of children diagnosed with type one diabetes than would be expected for its level of population. His comments:
"I would imagine it is linked to the fact that people in Norfolk are quite inbred. It is something that needs to be looked at as a priority."
Obviously his constituents are outraged. "It's an outrage" confirmed Britney, a 14-year old mono-browed mother of 4. "When I told my mum, my aunt and my sister, well, she was furious too".
