Even sadder that it's splashed all over the newspapers.
I take a contrary stance here - having it out in the open like this may well prompt her to leave him or for him to get help. There's also ample evidence for the police now should the victim wish to make a complaint.
I'm not saying that it is bad that the whole world will have seen what happened, more the fact that people who are in the media spotlight have every nuance of their lives on public view.

Although i have done it twice and both times the women turned on me.
I've witnessed an innocent bystander do this twice and both times, like in your case, it was the victim who then starting abusing the good Samaritan.
Wasnt outside a nightclub in rotherham was it. smile apparently was was to leave him alone because she had a knife and was going to stab me if i hurt him. She ended up jumping on a bouncers back, he was not as restrained as me all i did was push him away and then stand inbetween them.

The other time was in telford i was driving up thee road and saw a bloke smashing the st out of his bird. I stopped pulled him away and again stood inbetween them im a lover not a fighter. She threatened to call the police if i hurt him he wasnt doing any harmapparently she said with cuts and scratches all over her face.
Nine times out of ten this is the outcome. Ask any BiB that regularly deal with domestic violence cases.

I know a woman who has suffered domestic abuse. She once said to me that it was ok for him to slap her around, but our of order to do it in front of the kids. I just looked at her and was lost for words.

Just check the posting rules. The last bunch of posters that used misogyny in their comments received bans. Nothing to do with comedy.

I'm fine with edgy comedy, but in the same way I wouldn't make stereotypical jokes about the Nazis in the Germany forum, I wont make sexist jokes in a domestic violence news thread. Time and place, etc...

Of course not, the correct place for Nazi humour is in the Switzerland forum, the Krauts are all a bunch of Commies!

That would be plain stupid. Clearly you have little experience of calming anything down.

I would go for something like, "Excuse me, can I help?" Firmly, but with open body language and directed at the man. Anything to make him pause and break the current motions...

No doubt the right thing to do, but I challenge any red-blooded man (or woman wink) not to just thump him.

Nigella does have a following amongst males "of a certain age", many of whom frequent internet fora such as PH.

I could well imagine a whole phalanx of angry PHers rushing en masse to the defence of this "fair damsel in distress" crying "Hands off our Nigella".

Indeed. But never escalate a situation that you can't ultimately end...

Clearly I don't care and certainly don't share your opinion.

I don't consider throttling a woman in a restaurant reasonable behaviour.

Asking him to stop is the very least he should expect.

Absolutely. Scum, the lot of them.

Disgrace that activity can go on like that, blatantly, and whilst there's at least one person willing to take photos of the whole thing, no one stepped in and pointed out the error of his ways.

As for the restaurant, he'd should have been kicked out and barred.
This

Although i have done it twice and both times the women turned on me.
And that's the problem - a bloke that I used to work with once tried to intervene in a domestic and got a bottle smashed over his head for his troubles. By the woman that he was trying to help.

Never step in the middle of something like that.
