Magnanimity in politics is not seldom the truest wisdom, said Edmund Burke. Let me give the same advice to a minority of gay activists.

As a member of Seanad Eireann, I made one of the strongest speeches for civil partnership and supported same-sex marriage here.

So I trust most gay people will accept I am in good faith when I warn that a few gay activists have been going too far in retrospective recriminations about the recent referendum.
