Today's poll question; do you think that political parties should receive annual subsidies for each vote they get in general elections? The Prime Minister has declared his intention to campaign on eliminating the subsidy in the next election campaign, where the opposition parties have become largely dependent on these tax funded handouts to conduct day to day operations. The Bloc does virtually all their campaigning on party subsidies, and has to be the most ardently opposed to eliminating that source of funding. Ironically enough the Tories bring in the most money via vote subsidies by virtue of getting the most votes in the last two elections, and they are the ones who are going to campaign on eliminating it.
