More irony

Military cadets have to "guard" the final resting place of the founder of the nation. How ironic! I havent seen military guards on monuments in other countries that I visited.

Military people have taken over all major public institutions in this country. How often does that happen?

Good point. I haven't seen this done over here in US probably because memorials are hardly ever connected to burial grounds but a library, an architectural landmark or some kind of auditorium/public service place. However, in Paris I saw para-military honorary guards (different color uniforms from French Army) at "Tomb of the Unknown Soldier" under “Arc de Triomphe”.

Westminster Abbey doesn’t have queen’s guards either. Didn’t we learn anything from our ex-Masters :)

Yes, we did learn a few things from our ex masters. But all the wrong things. Forget the military, it's us, the stealing lot, that gave them the excuse, wasnt it?
