A family newspaper should not be paying as a contributor a man who has received a caution for assaulting his wife.

Letter to
Evening Standard Editor Sarah Sands
We ask you to terminate Charles Saatchi's contract as a contributor to your newspaper. He has received a caution from police for assaulting his wife, as evidenced in recent photographs which show him choking her around the neck. We therefore cannot imagine that anything this violent man has to say would be of interest or relevance to your readers, and his continued presence in your publication is an insult to abused women everywhere.
