Sir: We now know that Richard I was not a good leader of his country at all (Letters, 4, 5 November). Rather, he bankrupted the population in order to fight jingoistic campaigns against foreigners, and sought to identify himself with trumped-up religious causes, all purely for his own glorification. I think Westminster is exactly the right place to put his statue.
