When they closed his coffin lid, did it go 'clunk-click'??!! :)

Now then,now then goodness gracious me and as it happens no it didn`t :D .

Good to see a touch of humour there.............. he would have appreciated that.

Not so funny is the fact that they buried his coffin at a 45-degree angle, in order that he could 'see the sea' !

He's inside a coffin with no window, which is buried in the ground.................. & he's dead.

He won't be 'seeing' anything much...................

Perhaps not.

As if to reinforce the points I made, I read today that the coffin is made of steel & is being encased in concrete....................................

The story was (finally) covered here in the States on MSNBC with Brian Williams tonight.

The upshot was that the BBC has some questions to answer.
