Guess what 'secret ballot' means...

A ballot in secret.  So why do people go around declaring their vote and stating arguments with those who aren't voting that way?!  Although Stephen Fry can very dodgy at times, he makes some good points in his latest blog about the election, with this lovely cartoon:
Let's look at the manifestos, policies and shameless advertisement that the political parties of this government are putting forward and discuss.  Let's discuss the advantages and disadvantages of leaving the EU, restricting religious liberty, legalising euthanasia, drugs and gay 'marriage' and let's discuss which party would be best for this country.  But don't use your vote as a label and a divisive tool to start arguments!  Keep it secret as it's meant to be and we'll see what happens this week.  Could be a life changing moment...
