Reburial in Leicester?

Or in York?

(York! York! York!)

I was subjected to a long lecture by someone connected with Leicester Cathedral as to why they should have him and why those supporting York were misguided.
I was almost persuaded. Then my Yorkshire blood kicked in (so not biased at all) and I'm back firmly in the York camp.

Leicester stands to gain from the hoped-for tourism and revenue increase (Leicester Cathedral is the poorest English cathedral ,I think)but York seems a fitting and proper place to me.

What arguments did he make, Campion? Was it mainly the utilitarian ones about the value of the remains to Leicester?
