# I don't know if people who vote for him are morons
There's really no choice when it comes down to it. Thy are all useless career politicians who you wouldn't trust to run a stationary cupboard, let alone a country. Most people hold their nose when it comes time to put a cross on paper.

# Voting isn't compulsory
You can write "None of this shower" to show you cared enough to turn up. Or take a magenta pen and draw a huge CDC

Some of them are outright arseholes

# Nuance aint welcome on the internet!
Exactly, there's not a whole lot of choice and people evaluate a lot of decisions.

I know I elect an MP not a PM, that's a start in democracy. I've voted for different parties or abstained based upon my local MPs.

I had a friend who used to rant on about the evil Tories and the evil people that voted for them, knowing I have voted for a Tory MP previously. When I would mention surely voting Labour that left hundreds of thousands of dead in the middle east and a highly destabilised region decades later must make her pause for thought, it was all a bit of a shrug really. She also saw the Lib Dem student fees as far worse than the war, which I can't agree with but ultimately is her prerogative. It's far easier to reconcile yourself with the dead when they're brown ones abroad I guess.

I think we would all be better knowing that we all vote for a multitude of reasons, and the more we reduce to morons vs non morons the worst we are all off.

P.S. aren't all cupboards stationary? ;)
