So what?

On BBC1's Politics Show, Home Secretary John Reid said: "I think it was Andy Warhol who said most statements could be answered with the question 'so what?'. I think this is one of those 'so what?' moments."

Much as we would like to see the Boy King go down, his behaviour at the age of 15 is not an issue. That it has become a headline issue is more a measure of the contemporary media than it is the seriousness of Cameron's behaviour.

Unlike the increasingly dire and trivial MSM, therefore, we will not be referring any more to this colossal non-event. We will stay with the real business of politics.

Nor do we intend to discuss it on the forum. For anyone with a burning desire to get stuck in, there is always Tory Diary.
