BRITAIN: UK divorce judge drops the "F" bomb in court: "Don't 'fuck up' your children," he warns

Hysterical! See, that’s why I wouldn’t rush to be a judge because I am afraid I will curse on the bench (currently trying meditation as an antidote).¬†But a UK judge did it, and he was cunning about it. He read the cuss word from a poem. Gotta luv it. And I am sure he sounded very intelligent too, with that accent. Not the way I sound at all. But, so, I read on all these blogs that he read this poem in court to a couple who was in the midst of a particularly acrimonious divorce, and who had lost custody of their child to the child’s grandparents. The custody order was vacated on appeal and the mother got custody, but the judge said:
I hope this case has given the mother a fright. I hope it has also given the father a fright. They have come within a whisker of losing their child.” Then he read this poem by Larkin:
They fuck you up, your mum and dad.
They may not mean to, but they do.
They fill you with the faults they had
And add some extra, just for you.
I can’t tell you how much this cracks me up. I mean, I am on hiatus for chrissakes. I am trying to stop blogging and then I come across all these interesting “emergency” stories and I have to add them. Would be negligent if I didn’t. But what do you think? Is the judge correct? Do parents “fuck up” their kids? I wonder if an American judge could have gotten away with saying that? I tell ya. It’s a circus. It’s a bloody circus. And it’s bloody hysterical. And I luv it. I just luv it.
