    What a lovely, lovely ad!

    I hope equality has a very big win in Ireland. That would send an important message to hold-out countries in Europe (looking at you, Germany!) and elsewhere.

    The “Yes” ad campaign in Ireland has been effing brilliant.

    Let’s hope it works, because this could become the model for other marriage equality campaigns across the planet.

    This is the ultimate battle.
    We must win.
    If we were to fail on this the gay rights campaign would be set back for generations.
    We need to win this for the world !

    I love this ad.
    I want a thousand more .
