The profession, the SDT and Mr Bennett below constantly tie themselves up in knots on the issue of the 'fundamentalism' of dishonesty.

As Mr Whitehead says below, there ARE massive differences in levels of dishonesty - between fraudulently taking £100,000 out of client account at one end and then telling a lie to a boss about the reasons an unimportant item of work hasn't been done, at the other end.

Both are dishonest - is Mr Bennett seriously saying that the second example should end up at the SDT and the Solicitor not be struck off only if there are 'exceptional circumstances' going to the offender (and not to the offence)...?

Because that is where his and the SDT's logic flows.
