No.10: Caroline Stephens minute to MT (invitation to Metropolitan Police 150th birthday event) [“I do hope that you will refuse this invitation”] [released 2010]

Document type: Declassified documents
Source: Thatcher MSS (Churchill Archive Centre): THCR 6/2/2/4
Editorial comments: A sequence of documents are combined here in reverse chronological order, dated by the minute from which the title quote is drawn. The invovlement of ‘D.W.’ [David Wolfson], No.10 Chief of Staff, is unusual, suggesting great determination on the part of Miss Stephens to carry her point. But an immovable object met the irresistible force.
