       He's in the same grave as Lord Lucan.

       Oh, I don't know, poetic justice? That Shakespeare dude called it poetry, didn't he?
theircompetitor, Feb 04 2013

       Okay, I gotcha, sorta.
blissmiss, Feb 04 2013

       well, I would posit that were it not for the play, this would not be getting the level of coverage in the Times, or the numerous books that debate his evilness versus Tudorian propaganda, etc.

       They've been building up this whodunit story on SBS TV here, for weeks.

       //Oh. The Richard the third//   

       Reminds me of my favorite Odd Couple episode (dating myself here) where Felix bring a few "actresses" to the apparent, and when Oscar asks one of them what movies has she been in that he may have seen, she says Last Tango

       Oscar, incredulous: In Paris???

       Starlet: No, in Tijuana

       As seen on FB today   

       "A severely disabled Leicester King faces having to find work after being declared fit to work by French firm ATOS Healthcare despite being registered dead and suffering severe 550-year-old sword wounds to the head.   

       The dead monarch, Richard Plantagenet, was called for a reassessment of his fitness for work by ATOS – which carries out disability assessments on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) - after it was discovered the deposed King had spent years lying in a Leicester City Council car park doing absolutely nothing.   

       As a result of the reassessment by ATOS, the last royal descendant of the House of York was shocked to receive a letter this week telling him he had been given a score of zero in all criteria, which means he is considered to be fit to work.   

       The letter from the DWP states it considers Mr Plantagenet’s lack of eyes doesn’t prevent him from “finding his way around familiar and unfamiliar places” and the fact he is bereft of life does not mean his “capability for work is limited.”   

       However, the deceased king has questioned the disability assessment, claiming he has been registered dead since he was killed and crudely buried by his successor Henry VII during the Battle of Bosworth in 1485."

       I'm glad my fellow embittered kyphotic has turned up. Perhaps not quite glad enough to be at charges for a looking glass and entertain a score or two of tailors... but still glad.

       The third what?

       We need the tourist revenue. This place never makes the best of itself.

       I wonder what the total charges would be for 500+ years in a Leicester parking lot?
AusCan531, Mar 24 2015

       Well, I think the all-day rate in that one was about a fiver, so about £800 000 I think. Believe it or not I have a photo of the gate somewhere so that might say.
nineteenthly, Mar 24 2015

       // I have a photo of the gate somewhere //   

       [19thly], that just about sums up Leicester, and those that dwell therein.
