Sky News published this video item, entitled “Tales from 100 years at the Prime Minister’s Chequers retreat” – below is their description.

The six men and women who have been UK prime ministers seldom mix together except for solemn occasions such as funerals and Remembrance Sunday.

The dinner to mark a century of prime ministers living at Chequers this weekend is not going to be the cheerful joint celebration which the mansion’s trustees were hoping for.

Four of the living premiers – David Cameron, Gordon Brown, Tony Blair and Sir John Major – have turned down their invitations, pleading previous engagements.
