    Although, the non disclosure is a serious issue and properly as Judge Clarkson sets out. Yet one can but wonder at the variance of approach between the Tribunal and the LCRO on some matters. Honesty and integrity are fundamental values. Thus the drafting of a deliberately gilded and misleading High Court memorandum of made up discriminatory content, a matter of "honesty and integrity" - and a matter of high personal trust, along with the duties of candour to the Court bears scant regard by a Standards Committee and the LCRO. Is it not time these bodies started being consistent.
