Press Release from Mothers and Fathers Matter

DONOGHUE “JUST PLAIN WRONG” ON CIVIL PARTNERSHIP CLAIMS – NO CAMPAIGN

Mothers and Fathers Matter issued the following statement from Keith Mills in response to comments from Minister Paschal Donoghue, in which the minister claimed that “NO” campaigners had opposed civil partnership:

“I was surprised to learn from the Minister that I opposed civil partnership.

Clearly, I was dreaming when I lobbied vigorously for the bill to pass. I must have imagined my strong support for the legislation. Either that, or the Minister will spout whatever spoofery it takes to get control of the airwaves for five minutes.

Maybe Minister Donoghue would be so good as to debate me on the radio on the issue of my support for civil partnerships? He’s a politician, so he’ll have plenty of experience in telling people that the past is actually different from how they remember it.

If he doesn’t wish to convince me that I was dreaming when I lobbied his party for the civil partnership bill, maybe he could just apologise and withdraw his ridiculous comments instead.

I suppose it’s too much to ask him to think before he speaks, but I’m asking him anyway”.
