Should we be keeping political discussion off our Facebook timeline?

I don’t give a rats-ass how you’ll be voting, it ain’t gonna make me change my mind. Please people, keep it to yourself!

This is just the latest comment on my Facebook timeline, berating those who want to make political comment, with a UK general election less than a week away.

I made the decision a few weeks ago, after similar comments and even threats of being unfollowed and even unfriending, to halt all political comment on Facebook. But do I agree with doing this? No. However, as my Facebook posts are only directed at friends and family, and they mean more to me than making political jibes, I felt this was what I wanted to do.
