Duceppe supports audit of MP expenses

Smart move by the Bloc leader... this will put extreme pressure on the other leaders to support the auditing of all MP's expenses.

With the current scandals going on in Quebec, it's a smart move by the separatist movement in general to have all their parties, both the Bloc and Parti Québécois, quickly supporting additional political accountability like this... which will allow them to beat both Provincial and Federal Liberals over the head with this issue for many months, if not years, to come.

If Mr. Harper and Jack Layton are smart, they'll quickly side with him... and leave Iffy twisting in the wind, with his more recent comments opposing this measure.

I must point out that it's a bit of a double edged sword for the Bloc, however, to be bringing this issue up right now. It's a political risk for them because it now presents a further opportunity for the Harper government to talk about campaign serious finance reform... specifically the elimination of political subsidies. Cause if they REALLY want to talk about wasteful political spending, I can't think of a better example.
