There’ll be a report in a year or two saying he did stuff that he shouldn’t have, but that he broke no rules, and that the rules should maybe be tightened in future.

It’s received a fair amount of broadsheet coverage, but not the kind of headlines and wall-to-wall 9-day news domination that is necessary to affect anything really.
