Jimmy Savile

I never particularly cared much for jimmy Savile. I thought he was a bit of a clown. But I did admire his tireless work for charity.

However I think the plans for his funeral, lying in state in a hotel, touring the places he was associated with in leeds and the drive along Scarborough sea front with a public burial are somewhat over the top.

A clown he might have been but could they not have buried him in a more dignified manner?

I think he decided what he wanted at his funeral so I guess if that was what he wanted then so be it. You forgot to mention that he also asked to be buried at a 45 degree angle so he can 'see' the sea, I rather like that.

 

It's sad though as he can't be buried with his mum, who he worshipped, because the cemetery where she lies with his dad is full. :(
