John Oliver brilliantly discussed Ireland's same-sex marriage vote last night

The Pope got a wee shout out too.

IRELAND HAS long been a popular topic on comedian John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight - you might remember how brilliantly he summed up #YokeGate (remember #YokeGate?)

After a week’s break, John finally got around to discussing our same-sex marriage vote. And boy, did he tear it up.

Shouts to this particular quip:

Settle down a little, Catholic Church. Let’s save the ‘defeat for humanity’ accusation for things that truly deserve it, like this.


“THAT is a defeat for humanity. Because we are destroying civilisation one manipulated pork form at a time.”

Oh John. Have we told you lately that we love you?
