Why we are rerunning the referendum tonight? Not only are these are the Final Stages of the Bill, we had a debate for months with the population in every constituency. We knocked on doors and spoke to people. I have often been in a minority and I often will be in the Dáil. People may not like the result, but it is disingenuous to come to the House and bring all of these subjects up again. Whether people intend it or not, the effect is simply to delay the Bill.
