I'm still planning to write my second response to the UK election, hopefully before Planck starts on Monday. But before I do, I had to note the fantastic result from Ireland, which has become the first country ever to legalise gay marriage by popular vote. And not by a small margin, either; over 60% voted for equality. It's a wonderful result, and a sign of the changing times. Congratulations to all who campaigned on the right side!
