Bring Richard back

NOW that the skeleton discovered beneath a Leicester car park has been identified as that of Richard III, I earnestly hope he will he formally reburied in York Minster.

I wrote to the Dean and Chapter about this when the bones were uncovered and I will be writing again pressing for his interment in York, which is where I believe he should be buried.

He was the last Yorkist king and I think it is only right that he should be interred in the city.

As a keen member of the Richard III Society, I have a particular interest in this subject. His memory has been maligned for far too long and he should be laid to rest in peace in York.

Known for dubious references to territoriality and provenance, Mr Bloom should note the following.

If you are going to use the fact he was a King as an argument as to where to lay him to finally rest then he was King of ALL England, not of York, so to use that argument Westminster Abbey seems most appropriate

There's a deafening silence on this issue coming from the direction of both York MPs, the Council Leader, and our Archbishop. Shows where their loyalties lie and it's not with York.

Apologies to James Alexander, I've misjudged him I think.
