Final Thoughts on Swearing

Other criminal hacks will know the old story about an angry defendant at the old Knightsbridge Crown Court (round the back of Harrods – those were the days) who was sentenced to a substantial bit of bird. As he’s being taken out of the dock he shouts at the judge: ‘You’re a c***’. Judge says: ‘Stay there a moment Mr X. Now, when I leave here I’m going to play a round of golf and then go home, where my wife will have a gin and tonic waiting for me. We may go out to dinner. You are going to gaol. Who’s the c***?’
