The title of a recently released CBS News article is “U.K. police looking into Nigella Lawson THROAT-GRAB photos” (Web-site/URL: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-207_162-57589588/u.k-police-looking-into-nigella-lawson-throat-grab-photos/?tag=socsh).
“British police said Monday (June 17, 2013) they are investigating newspaper photos that show celebrity chef Nigella Lawson’s husband, Charles Saatchi, with his hands around her THROAT“, as if to STRANGLE her.
“The pictures DREW WIDESPREAD CONDEMNATION after they were published in The Mirror. The paper said the images were taken during an argument at a London restaurant on June 9 (2013)”. “The pictures drew widespread condemnation” and JUSTIFIABLY SO.
“Lawson’s spokesman, Mark Hutchinson, declined to comment on the images. But Saatchi, Britain’s best-known art collector, told London’s Evening Standard newspaper that the pictures misrepresented a “PLAYFUL TIFF (?)” Grabbing someone BY THE THROAT IS NOT “a “playful tiff”.
“Saatchi, an Evening Standard columnist, told the paper: “About a week ago (June 10, 2013), we were sitting outside a restaurant having an INTENSE debate about the children, and I HELD Nigella’s neck repeatedly WHILE ATTEMPTING TO EMPHASIZE MY POINT“. “(holding someone’s) neck repeatedly…to emphasize a point” IS UNACCEPTABLE. “There was NO grip, it was A PLAYFUL TIFF“. Again, STRANGLING someone IS NOT “a playful tiff”. There are clearly SINISTER implications there. “The pictures are horrific, BUT give A FAR MORE DRASTIC and VIOLENT impression of what took place“. THIS IS THE TRUTH. Also, Saatchi uses “But” which is problematic by itself (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-AJviZ8Itk). “Nigella’s tears were because we both hate ARGUING (and) NOT because she had been hurt“. “arguing” can be destructive, especially if people are held around THE THROAT. NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH.
“The 70-year-old said the couple “had made up by the time we were home“. REALLY? This is SAATCHI‘s INTERPRETATIONS (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).
Finally, “Saatchi said after the story broke Sunday (June 16 2013), HE HAD ADVISED (?) Lawson to leave the couple’s London home with their children “UNTIL THE DUST SETTLED (?)” SAATCHI is the crazy person here. He grabbed Nigella Lawson BY THE THROAT!
