George Osborne wants Theresa May 'chopped up in my freezer'

George Osborne wants Theresa May 'chopped up in my freezer'”

But the former chancellor is quoted in the profile as saying he no longer cares about offending anyone.

George Osborne reportedly told Evening Standard journalists that he would not rest until Prime Minister Theresa May is "chopped up in bags in my freezer".

The Prime Minister sacked Mr Osborne when she took over at Number 10 and he quit as an MP after the surprise announcement of his move into journalism.

Following the June election, which saw May lose an absolute majority for her party and resort to making a controversial deal with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) of Northern Ireland, Osborne described the PM as a "dead woman walking" who is on "death row".

Since then he has taken on a raft of lucrative jobs, earning nearly a million pounds from after-dinner speeches as well as becoming an adviser for Blackrock.

Oh dear. Although George Osborne appeared to offer Theresa May an olive branch in Tuesday's Evening Standard with a leader praising her work on modern slavery, there's reason to believe all is not well.

Osborne's office is yet to comment on the claim from an anonymous source.

"One thing people in the Conservative Party will realise is 'you mess with George Osborne at your peril'".

He told the magazine: "Most newspapers are very partisan".

However, Osborne said he is not trying to settle scores, telling the magazine he's "sticking it to the Corbynista left and the hard-Brexit right".

"I'm sure there should be no chopping up", he added.

Nick Timothy, May's former co-chief of staff who resigned after the election, highlighted the quote on Twitter, along with remarks by an ally saying: "He's got a gun now".

Mr Osborne added: "The failure was a massive failure of fire standards over many, many years, and that is a scandal we've talked about".
