Inbreeding remarks cause outcry...

Oh, yes....his remarks were 'racist' and 'Islamaphobic'...
Demands were growing yesterday for the sacking of a government minister after he warned about the problems of marriage between Pakistani first cousins.

Phil Woolas claimed that this had caused a surge in birth defects in the UK.

The Environment Minister also suggested the issue was being ignored by Muslim leaders, declaring it was the "elephant in the room" which urgently needed to be addressed.

It set off another heated debate about Muslims in Britain, following the outcry over the Archbishop of Canterbury's remarks on sharia law.

MPs said Mr Woolas's comments were insensitive and wrong, while the Muslim Public Affairs Council said they were "racist" and "Islamaphobic".

So, are first cousins marrying? If in fact they are, this should be addressed.
