Charles Saatchi launches bizarre attack on Taki

The saying “older but wiser” certainly doesn’t apply to Charles Saatchi who has launched a “furious attack” on socialite journalist Taki Theodoracopulous.

‘The Spectator’ is very much behind the idea of a fight between Saatchi and Taki

Saatchi, whose marital strife has filled acres of column inches for far too long now, wrote to The Spectator after Taki took to the defence of Nigella Lawson in the magazine. His letter read:

Dear Ms Taki [sic],

 

Although the Spectator is a lovely read, I always skip your column, I’m afraid.

 

I am simply not interested in your social life. I know that you delight in telling readers that your friends of Prussian nobility find you hilariously entertaining company at their swanky Europoncy parties.

 

But it was very hapless of you to spring to Nigella’s defence last week, as she always found you toe-curlingly vile, and would have been aghast at having you as her valiant supporter.

 

People tell me that in your unreadable column you also like to brag that you are a Black Belt at karate. Well, me too, old boy. But apparently your ‘fights’ are genteel affairs, against other soppy geriatrics rolling around the floor in crisp white outfits, in some bit of judokai nonsense.

 

Mine take place in cages, 20 feet square, unofficial little events with no gloves, no rules, and the loser being carried out, usually battered to bits. You will understand why I laughed out loud at your schoolyard boast that I should try throttling a real hard case like you.

 

Yours,

 

Charles Saatchi

 

Taki replied in his column this week and stated:

 

“I am 77 years old, 5ft 9in and weigh 185lbs. I am willing to face him any time under cage-fighting non-rules, which will be a first for me. I need three days’ notice”.

 

Fraser Nelson, the magazine’s editor, has offered to stage such a fight in the garden of The Spectator’s offices in Westminster. If this were to happen, we’d most definitely be amongst those who’d be cheering Taki on.

    1. Andy Kaufman was a comedian and star of the 1980’s hit television show Taxi and a frequent guest on Saturday Night Live. As part of his comedy routine, he would wrestle women and declared himself the Intergender World Champion. In 1982, he took his comedy skit to the Memphis wrestling territory.
      When he went to Memphis, he offered any woman in the crowd $1,000 and his hand in marriage if they could beat him. Local wrestling legend, Jerry “The King” Lawler was getting sick of seeing him humiliate the local women. He trained a lady named Foxy and after she lost and Kaufman wouldn’t stop humiliating her, Lawler pushed Kaufman off her. Kaufman threatened to sue but later accepted Lawler’s challenge to a wrestling match.
      The story made the front page of the New York Times. It later turned out that Lawler and Kaufman were great friends. What a publicity stunt. Saatchi and Taki are taking the piss.
