`Bias' on the bench

Sir: Calls for Lord Hoffmann's resignation are another depressing indication of the blame-and-shame culture which permeates life in the UK. A vibrant, open society warmly accepts occasional errors of judgement even (indeed especially) from the most talented; if the best judges can stumble on the pedestal without falling then the rest may rejoice in errors as a sign of dynamism.
