    Enough for those like stevento?

    Why am I guessing not so much.

    What difference, if any, would it make at this stage?

    Not much, it's mostly symbolic.

    it is mainly symbolic, yes, but a good gesture at that imo.

    He wanted them punished for breaking the rules, but it doesn't matter now as much as party unity does.

    As said, it's mostly symbolic.

    Sorry, it seems that my post didn't translate into forumspeak very well. It would have been more accurate if I'd written something like: Well, this just doesn't make much difference, does it. The cynics will say that he knows it doesn't make any difference and that's why he's doing it.

    My fault.

    It sounds like something out of the Hillary playbook.
