  • J A Ricketts says:

    Richard iii belongs in York.

  • Michael Orange says:

    While the people of Wales & Ireland have a claim, Richard III was not a Scottish king and so excluding Scotland from the decision is in order if the electorate of England were to be chosen. However, in these days of freedom of travel it would be a pity to exclude anyone who wishes to express an opinion.

  • Laura says:

    I work at Westminster Abbey and would dearly love Richard to be buried next to Anne Neville near the High Altar. I tell his story to visitors as often as I can and love having a new chapter to add to it with the recent discovery. However, on balance, I think he should be reburied as close to where he was originally as possible, in Leicester Cathedral.
