One poll needless while the other is pointless

Can it be true? In these austere times the Government is holding a referendum to change the constitution to allow same-sex “marriage”, so that a man can “marry” another man and a woman can “marry” another womane?

To my mind asking his question is nothing less than an insult to the intelligence of the vast majority of the citizens of this State.

The second referendum regarding the age when one can become President is neither here nor there. This office is of no benefit to us; just an added expense. We don’t need both an Uachtarán and a Taoiseach.
