Leeches and pol­i­tics

Fiji Sun - - COMMENT - Suva

Leeches typ­i­cally feed for about 20 or 30 min­utes be­fore drop­ping off your body. Bleed­ing from a leech bite lasts 10 hours on av­er­age, but some­times con­tin­ues for days. One leeche in par­tic­u­lar can­not let go of its host. I am sure he will even­tu­ally find out that the host is poi­sonous. I’m sur­prised that it is tak­ing so long de­spite so many blood screen­ing.

We must hide from leeches be­cause they are skil­ful ma­nip­u­la­tors. Be care­ful of who’s lurking be­side you in Par­lia­ment.
