I was disgusted at the lowering of flags on all government buildings over the death of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia. The brutal human rights abuses of the Saudi regime, crushing religious freedom and free speech are atrocious. But at least King Abdullah never killed any members of his own family. The psychotic, Richard the Third had his own nephews killed.
Richard had his two nephews, the Princes in the Tower murdered. There was also the murder of Henry VI. Richard III also had William, Lord Hastings beheaded, he had his friend Henry Stafford executed in Salisbury market place and had Lord Rivers and Sir Richard Grey quietly murdered. Yet today in Leicester, people are honouring this hunchbacked monster.
Here the BBC reports that a spokesman for Leicester Cathedral has confirmed that the Queen has written a greeting that will appear in the order of service at the reinterment but details of the message’s content will not be released ahead of the event. Also some people are calling for a state funeral to be given to this villainous king like was given to our greatest peace time prime minister. His bones should have been thrown into a council incinerator.
