I have to seriously question the political savvy of any politician think that the general electorate would view the heightened risk of politicians committing suicide as anything but a positive thing:
Embarrassing disclosures about the vast expenses claims of MPs amount to a “McCarthy-style witch-hunt” that risks driving politicians to suicide, an MP warned on Friday. Nadine Dorries wrote on her blog that the two-week scandal, in which the Daily Telegraph has drip-fed details of how MPs have abused their generous expense allowances, was forcing politicians to the brink.
Hunt away, baby. Hunt away.
