Former Prime Minister's Funeral

The former Prime Minister was buried at a "simple, even austere" ceremony at the Temple Church, ending with the singing of Jerusalem. Fewer than 150 people were in attendance.

The former Prime Minister?

Clement Attlee, who died in 1967.

A far cry from the vulgar display planned for next Wednesday.

(see Martin Kettle in The Guardian 11/4/13).
