Well, you're allowed to make bad choices, I suppose.

Policy decisions always make someone unhappy -- they're not needed if
everyone's agreed on the right thing to do, they're not even needed if
everyone doing the work is agreed on the right thing to do. If you're
expecting folks who disagree with you to support policy decisions that
go in your favour -- which is presumably what you were hoping for when
you asked for one -- you should do likewise for policy decisions that
aren't in your favour.
