But then Tapioca charges Haddock, Tintin, and Professor Calculus are declared to be part of the conspiracy and a series of charges and countercharges, as well as outright insults, fly back in the forth in the headlines between Haddock and Tapioca.

Contrary to the more certain politics of earlier works such as Tintin in the Land of the Soviets or King Ottokar's Sceptre, Hergé here presents a more weary and (perhaps) less naive Tintin who permits (with large restrictions) a coup insofar that it serves his means.
It is a coup that brings no change to the people of San Theodoras, rather than a triumphant liberation and Tintin, fatigued of adventure, wises to return home rather than bask in the moment.
