Have your say

Thomas Crooks (Letters, 13 June) asks a very important question, one I wish to extend. Judicial office-holders are bound by an oath. How many are bound by more than one oath? Might a Nobel Prize also be awarded to the person who uncovers the oath which binds them to a secret society and which in turn may compromise a judgment?

Perhaps this may be much more important than any gift or hospitality and be more pertinent in defining “Principles and Ethics”.
