Bring it on

Michael Cullen has hinted that other MPs may be subjected to the same financial scrutiny currently being enjoyed by John Tamihere. Good. I have no stomach for political corruption, and if John Tamihere's misbehaviour results in a general airing of financial dirty laundry and exposure of dubious practices to public scrutiny, then he will have done us all a tremendous favour.

As for Tamihere himself, I agree with Colin James that his departure from Parliament would be a loss for New Zealand - but OTOH if the charges against him stack up, we are well rid of him.
