“We will never be a great people. This ridiculous, small-minded obsession over an argument in a nightclub involving Belinda Neal, while issues like the Iraq War and genuine refugees being sent hom to torture and execution hardly raise eyebrows, illustrates why  we can never amount to anything more than a petty, insipid, soap opera of a country.”

Liam O’Neill, letter to the Daly Telegraph.
