Judge and defendant exchange insults in court - yes, it's wrong, wrong, wrong but...

... I can see how she must have just snapped.

Story here

"John Hennigan, 50, who had breached the order by using racist language towards a black woman and her two children told Chelmsford crown court judge Patricia Lynch QC that she was “a bit of a cunt”. And Judge Lynch replied: “You are a bit of a cunt yourself.”

When Hennigan screamed back “Go fuck yourself”, the judge replied: “You too.” He reportedly also shouted “Sieg Heil” – a pro-Hitler chant used in Nazi Germany – and banged the glass panel of the dock as he was jailed for 18 months."

A complaint has been made against her now.

Shouldn't have lowered herself imo

I can't believe anyone would complain about this!

Cunt is far too good to describe this vile individual.

Not a mumsnetter or she'd have told him to fuck of to the far side of fuck and when he got there fuck off some more.

I'm sure she knows that. I can see the scene in the tv drama already - Helen Mirren or Maxine Peake having a solitar scotch at home.

I bet the folk complaining weren't even there they'll have been suitably outraged reading about it.

Talking to him in a language he understood Good on her

I can't believe how many times he violated his ASBO before getting a custodial sentence.

Loving the judges comment though

I think she's brilliant. He's a vile creature, why should anyone have to pussyfoot around him because of their status? Sometimes you just have to call a spade a spade!

I can't believe anyone found the time or inclination to actually make a complaint about this. I suggest taking that time and energy and actually do something useful instead.

She'll have got a standing ovation in chambers.
