High profile No campaigner reacts very poorly to referendum result
Paddy Manning, who campaigned for a No vote in the Marriage referendum, hasn't taken news of his side's defeat very well.
Stupid won. Emotion trumped rationality. Democracy allows the people to be wrong. Tide of ugliness from intolerant Yes campaign continues.— Paddy Manning ن (@PaddyJManning) May 23, 2015
I'm proud of No campaign, its inclusiveness, rationality & courage. We won the argument but lost the vote.— Paddy Manning ن (@PaddyJManning) May 23, 2015
Manning's reaction was in contrast to other major No campaigners, such as the Iona Institute.
