Here’s the full version of Rebekah Brooks’s cringe-making text to David Cameron, which has just been revealed during the latter’s appearance at the Leveson inquiry.

But seriously I do understand the issue with the Times, let’s discuss over country supper soon. On the party that’s because I had invited a number of NI people to Manchester post-endorsement … I am so rooting for you, not just as a personal friend but because professionally we are in this together. Speech of your life? Yes he Cam!

Cameron was visibly embarrassed by the text but I suspect that Downing Street will be relieved if this is as bad as it gets. The publication of a sycophantic message from Cameron to Brooks (of which there are likely many) would have been far more damaging.
