I've voted, and not for you!

I've voted, and not for you!

And you know what? I might even have not voted for the same party as you. I might have voted for the Tories while opposing their NHS plans. I might have voted for Labour while disagreeing with their transport policies. I might have voted Lib Dem while opposing their political reforms. I could even have voted Green while disagreeing with their energy proposals.

I looked at the options and considered the policies. I voted based on what I agreed with and what I disagreed with.

And most importantly, not based on how my Facebook feed was screaming at me about how I absolutely must vote a particular way because anyone who doesn't vote that way is obviously an evil person who obviously hates the poor/rich/healthy/ill/young/old/homeless/homeowners/privatisation/nationalisation/community/companies/locals/immigrants/dolphins/foxes.
