The funeral of Margaret Thatcher was a master-class in event management. The speakers were in the right place; the music cues were on time; the camera cues were perfect.

There were no silences or gaps. Nobody had to wait for microphone adjustments.

Yet, the logistics and security were as complex as it could possibly get at an event.

The perfect smooth running of this event was down to one thing: rehearsals.

Rest In Peace, Margaret Thatcher
