Or at least sexually assaulted:
At first glance, it appears an everyday story of an older man falling for a younger, pretty blonde woman.
The photographic evidence certainly seems to suggest Seumas Milne, the 59-year-old Labour Party spin doctor, enjoying an intimate romantic clinch with a 36-year-old lawyer who is not his wife.
Not so, said friends of Mr Milne. Perhaps somewhat ungallantly, they insisted Mr Milne was “not a willing participant” in the encounter.
Mr Milne, Jeremy Corbyn’s director of communications, had not relished a moment of his embrace with Jennifer Robinson, a human rights lawyer, on the balcony of a hotel in east London.
The point being that, from the imagery at least, that was sexual assault if it was unwilling.
