PM's Use of Non-government Email Okay

Yesterday I was interviewed by ABC TV and The Australian, on the Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull's use of non-government email services. Verisons of this also appeared in the International Business Times, CelebCafe, . I said this was okay, as it was not used for unclassified non-sensitive  information and the usual record-keeping was done. I was surprised this caused so much fuss in the media (more of a ripple in a tea cup than a storm) and I suggested the overloading of the NBN Interim Satellite Service was a more important issue.
