If you are "I" (man - sentient being) then anything spoken of is "my".
Using "your" could be construed as third party referencing.

"MY honour" also speaks the truth of the environment; from your perspective, the truth is based on "my honour".
Mmmm OK Would it not also putting the judge on the spot by questioning his Honour? ie Your honour.

How would it be construed as a third party reference?
