    I think the fact she’s left the family home ‘to let the dust settle’ sums it up nicely.

    Does look like the actions of a complete ****.

    He needs to work on his excuses.

    How about:

    “I was describing to Nigella how Foie Gras is made, including how they feed the ducks. Nigella found it very upsetting, hence the reason she left the restaurant in tears.”

    As an ex advertising guy, you would feel that he could come up with a better “narrative” than that.
    Obviously, only they know what happened but it is a bit unsavoury TBH.

    Why was there a camera man there …

    In Monday’s Evening Standard, Mr Saatchi said: “About a week ago, we were sitting outside a restaurant having an intense debate about the children, and I held Nigella’s neck repeatedly while attempting to emphasise my point.

    “There was no grip, it was a playful tiff.

    “Nigella’s tears were because we both hate arguing, not because she had been hurt.

    Course we believe you. What a ****.

    Yeah, whenever I have a ‘a debate’ with Mr Toast he quite often holds my neck, because it’s a great way for me to see the sense behind his arguments. I kick him in the nuts in response, because it’s an eloquent riposte.

    Oh wait, no we don’t, because neither of us are psychopaths.

    Perhaps because she’s just set his back on fire ?

    ‘accepted a caution’ = ‘admitted to domestic violence’

    The bloke’s an utter shit and to start saying ‘it wasn’t how it looked’ is making him look even worse.

    Either ‘fess up in public or keep your mouth shut woudl be my advice.

    I don’t know if you’ve noticed but just about everyone has a camera in their pocket these days. Someone was probably taking a moments break from tweeting a picture of their dinner.

    Relax everyone. It’s OK. He got a police caution. Justice is done…..

    Thats the fire heating up the burning brand just in case throttling her does not work.

    Agreed, the initial statement (from him alone, not her) compounds the issue imo.

    They are not amateur snaps, they are taken from a carefully-chosen perspective by somebody with a good professional lense.

    His actions are of course unforgiveable but the actions of the photographer, snoooping on a private matter, are almost as bad.

    Oh, the irony of the world’s richest publicist being caught out by the media!

    Who’d have thunk it? A Paparazzi in the vicintiy of a posh London eatery, where they’ve got wind that a close friend of the prime minister is busy strangling his celebrity chef spouse.

    I’ve no in-depth knowledge of the mindset of wife-beaters, but if you were involved in a ‘private matter’ that involved you assaulting your partner, maybe best not to do it in a central London restaurant where everyone knows who you are

    Oh… was there any mention of whether Nigella said “leave it Darren! Ee’s not worth it!” at any point?

    leading to the inevitable ponderings about what might go on behind closed doors….

    Odious little git.
    Nothing likeable about the man.
    And he made Damien Hirst rich which is almost as bad.

    Indeed convert. Exactly the point made by Mrs Binners when she saw the photo’s

    What a lovely bloke he is. Though clearly nowhere near as bright as he likes to think he is. It probably says a lot about his arrogance that he thinks he can do that in public, then cook up some preposterous story to justify it, and get away with it.

    Who’d have thought that a man who got Thatcher elected, and made £100M from advertising, could be a bit of a dick?

    On a forum where utter rubbish is uttered every day, you must have tried very hard to come out with that little gem. That is the most stupid thing I have seen written here since the great ban hammer came down a few months ago.

    It was not a private matter, it was two publicly known people in a public place, it was not even indoors!

    Behaviour like that does not deserve privacy

    Paparazzi can be pretty low but it is a million miles from grabbing a somebody round the throat ‘to emphasise your point’. Do you really think it ‘is almost as bad’? 🙄

    I think the fact she’s left the family home ‘to let the dust settle’ sums it up nicely.

    Indeed, also the fact he “told Nigella to take the kids off till the dust settled” rather than “asked” or “suggested” sums it up nicely…

    Why has the whole family moved out of the family home, leaving him behind. Surely it should be him moving out?

    He wants some time to sit around in his tracky bottoms and a vest, eating delivery pizza’s, smoking fags, and drinking Stella

    He has an empire of opinion-forming, media-leading, gloss and spin. Is that the best story he can come up with? It makes you wonder.

    but the actions of the photographer, snoooping on a public assault, are almost as bad.

    Apart from the fags, that sounds quite pleasant to me!

    Shame no-one (inc the photiographer) intervened to ‘ask’ Mr Saatchi if he wouldn’t mind letting go of his wifes throat.

    Frank

    You would think so,but nothing works the same in the rarefied air of the rich and famous.

    I would imagine they have more than a few family homes to choose from,I doubt any were that happy .

    It’s a sad little story,but I never liked or admired anything about them.

    She’s the daughter of Nigel Lawson, former MP and Chancellor, now a Lord, the sort of bloke who might be able to arrange protective overwatch, a papp or two, and the pics getting into the papers.

    Sorry, have I accidentally stumbled upon the Daily Mail comments section?

    None of you know what’s going on in that scummy pap photo.

    The man’s a scumbag no doubt I’m assuming nigella mustve made. A complaint for him to be charged ?
    Though in my old work there was a picture in the administrators office of Leo sayer wearing purple latex gloves pretending to strangle one of the secretarys

    No one in his position accepts a police caution (ie. he now has a ‘proper’ criminal record) for an assault if there is any doubt as to what was going on.

    I’m gonna agree with DezB.. they’ve both made their livings from being very sensuous people..

    You’re right Dezzy. We shouldn’t judge, and his story was completely plausible. Would you like to punch me in the face? In a friendly, playful manner of course, to stress your point? 😉

    CRIPES! That doesn’t look as nice as they described it!

    I think the most telling part of all this is the deafening silence from the other party.

    If it was all a misunderstanding, or a lot less serious than it looks, a simple statement from her would put it all to rest. As it is, by her silence she’s hanging him out to dry. Expect a messy divorce to be the next step…

    I’ll give it 24 hours before his ‘friends’ claim it was all a set up by Nigella & he was ‘provoked’.

    His actions are of course unforgiveable but the actions of the photographer, snoooping on a private matter, are almost as bad.

    Domestic violence is hardly something that should be hidden away. The unacceptable nature of his actions and the consequences should be highlighted across the front pages. In hope that it stops it happening to someone else.

    The only criticism you could levy against the photographer is that he/she didn’t intervene, which also goes for the couple sat at the table next to them.
