Clement Attlee




Fondly remembering him today as they bury Mrs. Thatcher.



EXTRA:

Clement Attlee did not get a state funeral, but he did get a burial in Westminster Abbey, though in a far corner of it near the main door.  I remember seeing him there on my one and only visit to the Abbey.

Was amazing. Wish we could have a similar president someday. Is it true he did not even receive a state funeral?
