George Best Funeral

#1
If anybody watched the coverage of Geordie Bests funeral the other week it is intersesting to know that the funeral bearers carrying the coffin up the steps at Stormont were all members of the Royal Irish Regiment. I think they made a shambles of carrying the coffin up the steps as they were out of step with a touch of the wobbles but the downward march seemed ok. My question is who foots the bill for using military personnel in this capacity?

Also, the Irish Guards would have been a better choice than the local militia of the UDR - sorry, Royal Irish.

When you say they were out of step, was it that they were in step but should have been out of step in the correct manner ?.

I don't know whether it was George's Best Funeral....I thought most people only ever had one....is it something like the Queen's birthday...will there be another one this year...then we can decide which is the superlative, let's hope he doesn't smell too bad when they dig him up for the next.
