A comment by admin tickled my interest and I started to look this up. The Internet is as about as reliable as the BBC when it comes down to this and I found many articles that gave me a reasonably informed brief on the subject and the issues.
Firstly I don’t want to marry my cousin (a shag would suffice) and that was not the purpose of my research (should you call it so) but the prevalence of birth defects amongst certain communities and the justification of them.
This article is quite balanced but you will note the “refer to elder” on the end of it.
I was rather surprised that the BBC published this one,
I also found a number of hard left/ right (its wrong/its right) articles on the subject; the rights stating a “possibility of mutation”, the wrongs stating the obvious plus mental health figures from a Scandinavian country that seems to have 30% of its nutters imported.
I also found mention that Holland, a rather liberal country, was against the import of cousin brides where as the UK its on the up.
What a bunch of cunts they are, and Brexit won’t save us because they are Commonwealth not European.

Comment from Chas C :
My great grandparents were first cousins which probably explains why I’m so weird. If really screws up family tree programs.
Also I married my 15th cousin. Does that count?
