Irony or political strategy

Yesterday we got the Harper governement second budget, a few hours later we got the Bloc Quebecois support of the buget, insuring Harper's governement life for a few more months at least. This also give the liberal (and to a lesser extend the NPD) free reign to bash on the budget since they cannot defeat the governement over it. Not to mention that this might undercut the Party Quebecois attempt to demonize the federal governement.

So it's either a strategy to prevent the fall of the governement when most of the Bloc promotional machine is occupied with the Provincial PQ campaign, or it is irony that the souvernist party likes the federal ideas.
