Conservatism

If nobody can lie, then truth ceases to exist

This happened last night: Host Claire Byrne’s opening line revealed what, in retrospect, might kindly be seen as something of a naive ambition: Tonight, everything you need to know about next week’s referendum on the Eighth Amendment. Wow, Claire. Everything I need to know? I mean, everything??? Let’s just say […]

This pro-life activist has a foolproof plan to reduce abortion numbers, and it involves only a *little* racism

It is well known that around 3,500 women travelled from Ireland to Britain to get abortions in 2016, which, from a population of around 4.5 million, is a rather high number. So how does this anti-abortion activist from Ireland’s Life Institute play down the numbers? Well, over to her… In […]

So apparently George Soros “can’t stand” Ireland’s anti-abortion clause because, well, obvs

This is one of Ireland’s very stable geniuses.
