Most hosts would be quite happy to have Paul McCartney come to a shindig. But that wasn't the case with Denis Thatcher in 1988 when planning a gala reception at 10 Downing Street.

Newly released papers show that the husband of British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher put a question mark next to the former Beatle's name on a proposed guest list he was reviewing.

The papers, released today, show Denis Thatcher putting check marks next to the guests he approved and question marks next to those he was less comfortable with.

In a note, he wrote that he found it "unpleasant and embarrassing to entertain those who publicly insult the PM."

The papers show he also questioned the inclusion of naturalist David Attenborough and singer Shirley Bassey.
