I write about your statement in response to Lord Carlile’s report.
Surely you are wrong to treat transparency as an absolute value that overrides all other considerations. ‘Innocent until proven guilty’ is a higher value and in this case transparency caused great harm to the reputation an innocent person. That is wrong.
To refer implicitly as you do to evil actions by Bishop George Bell, when an objective investigation has concluded that there is no dependable evidence of the evil, was in my view a wicked act of defamation.
