Is this why they are mad as hatters?

A friend calls me with a strange tale. He was having a meeting in the European Commission HQ Berlyamont building a few days ago, up amongst the Gods on the 13th floor (Cabinet offices). A Commission drone apologised for the lack of coffee.

Apparently the coffee machine up there has been closed by Elf 'n Safety due to very high lead concentrations. Now if the water going to the 13th floor is contaminated, that would suggest that the entire Berlyamont's water system is compromised.
And we all know what happens when there is exposure to lead poisoning...

We now know that lead damages the brain, lowering IQ and causing learning disabilities and behavioral problems.
