The result of the Eighth Amendment referendum has been, at times, bizarre. Some on the winning side appear to believe we've seen the dawn of a new mass liberalism.

Meanwhile, some prominent pro-Eighth spokespeople appear to be flipping out. One rattled on about how he might deprive us of his tax money. Another wrote that Ireland itself has died and wrote our collective obituary.

I don't recognise this country in either of these views - the alleged new dawn or the collapse of civilisation as we know it.
