Lead poisoning, that explains a lot

Apparently the water at Queens park is tainted with lead. A quick search showed me that while lead poisoning is more damaging to children, in adults it has the following effects.

"In adults, lead can increase blood pressure and cause fertility problems, nerve disorders, muscle and joint pain, irritability, and memory or concentration problems. "

This has obviously been a problem for a while,

High blood pressure, I've seen a lot of red faces and bulging veins in question period.

Fertility problems, I don't know about this but we can certainly hope they can't breed.

Nerve disorders, irritability, memory or concentration problems,
most certainly apparent .

It's obvious the whole lot of them need to be sent away to a long term convalescence home where they can rest, rehabilitate and learn a nice trade like knitting.

What this definitely proves is the House of Commons must have much more lead contamination than Queen's Park.Recommend this Post
