Let's be realistic with our expectations for the IBRC inquiry

Listening to the furore generated by the disclosure that the IBRC inquiry had run into difficulties, it's hard not to think of Harry Enfield's brilliant 'Scousers' sketch and its catch cry of "calm down, calm down".
There is a problem here, absolutely. Anything stopping a commission of inquiry going about its business needs to be quickly addressed.
But talk of it being a major crisis and a huge embarrassment for the Coalition looks completely overblown. If this is a crisis, then we risk living in a permanent state of national emergency.
