The shadow home secretary said Nick Clegg demonstrated "how little he understands violence against women" after he said Charles Saatchi's assault of wife Nigella Lawson could have been "a fleeting thing."
Labour's Yvette Cooper tweeted:
Clegg shows how little he understands violence against women - too often dismissed as fleeting or unimportant when it is a hidden crime 1/2
Saatchi accepted caution for assault. Mins should condemn all violence against women & show they take it seriously. Clegg failed today 2/2
