So-called liberals are small-minded

I have often found David Quinn to be one of the more informed and engaging conservatives when commenting on social issues. It came as a surprise to me, then, to see him diminish and misrepresent liberal ideals ('Robinson played into the hands of her enemies', Irish Independent, January 15).

True, Iris Robinson is being dealt her comeuppance, and it is correct that many people are revelling in what must be a horrific time for her and her family.

However, Quinn is mistaken to characterise the gleeful bystanders as "liberals".
