“I slept well because I dreamed that I was between your naked legs”

The Herald reports:

Sexually explicit messages allegedly sent by former Conservative Party leader to his then-press secretary have been revealed during a defamation trial in the High Court.

One message Craig allegedly sent Rachel MacGregor before her sudden resignation before the 2014 general election read: “I slept well because I dreamed that I was between your naked legs”.

The message and others were read in court today by Jordan Williams, a friend of MacGregor who supported her after she left her job.

Assuming the message is correct, that is an incredibly bad e-mail for any employer to send to a staffer, an even worse one for a politician and even worse for a politician who leads a party which is seen as a family values party.

Note that this is a trial, and evidence may be contested. Please do not speculate on any legal issues, but discussion of the political impact is okay.
