He was a Remain campaigner the whole time. Then I went on the shared computer today and he left an email up saying he voted leave but pretended to me that he voted Remain.

Who gives a toss?
My dh and I voted Leave/Remain, no big deal.
Presumably he feared the backlash from you?

Meh.

It's done now and we've all moved on.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Sat 02-Jul-16 15:43:57

So what? Dh and I voted differently, we always have.

Why are you convinced he lied to you rather than he lied in the email?

And does it really matter much either way?

Not all people have moved on.

Can't see the point of this thread though. Deal with it.

So he went out and campaigned for Remain and voted Leave? He's basically the opposite of Boris Johnson then isn't he?

Are you upset that he lied to you or that he voted leave? I suspect if it's because of the way he voted then that is probably why he lies in the first place.

Since when was it anyone else's business which way somebody votes?

what's your AIBU please?

MelanieCheeks Sat 02-Jul-16 15:50:05

How do you know he's not lying on the email?

Anyway - he's lying somewhere, that's not great.

To some people, what way the other voted isn't a big deal, to others it's huge (I'd be in the latter camp). The way you voted says an awful lot about your views on society.

Daily Fail?????

The Daily Mail are a bunch of lazy plagiarising numbskulls. Why don't real journalists get jobs?

If someone lies about an important thing, that's a red flag. If someone lies about something that is of no importance whatsoever, but that he also has no reason to lie about to spare someone's feelings, etc. then that is ALSO a red flag.
Lying about everyday stuff just because you can is pathologic and symptomatic of deeper problems.

Since when was it anyone else's business which way somebody votes?

Ever since the way somebody votes influences how other people have to live. So, basically ever since voting was invented. The vote is secret so that those in power cannot keep people from voting them out of power. It is not secret so that you can pretend the kind of person who would vote Remain while actually voting Leave.

I would run for the hills. Either he lied to you, or he lied to this person he wrote the mail to. And not only that, he also campaigned for Remain, thus potentially lied to a lot of people in a very blatant way.

This is all kinds of weird and I'd find it creepy.

There is no AIBU so i cant say if YABU or YANBU.

My husband voted leave, I voted remain. It isn't a big deal, well not for us anyway.

Pinkheart5915 Sat 02-Jul-16 16:13:18

Daily fail is that you?

This somebody I know voted leave/remain and I don't like it type threads have been done to absolute death.

Lynnm63 Sat 02-Jul-16 16:16:52

YABU to start a thread like this. Go away and get a grip.

mrsfuzzy Sat 02-Jul-16 16:20:31

hello people are being hard on you for a reason, this is nothing to get wound up about in the bigger scheme of things unless he lies in other matters,

Benedikte2 Sat 02-Jul-16 16:22:29

I guess it's the dishonesty issue that's upset you?
I think anyone who can lie to his DW about something as important as this is dispicable. Who was the email addressed to? If it was to somebody you know who now knows he lied to you, that's pretty humiliating and compounds his bad behaviour

mrsfuzzy Sat 02-Jul-16 16:23:30

i think i'd be more bothered that he 'confessed' online, can you not talk to each other ?
