One hell of a backflip

I was intending to write a post sneering at the idea that an official inquiry could clear someone without ever investigating the core allegations. But events have moved too quickly: last night's whitewash has suddenly turned into an SFO referral. Which is one hell of a backflip from a Minister who less than 24 hours ago was saying "nothing to see here, move along". But it does conveniently mean that they no longer have to answer questions about it in Parliament or from the media.
