Given the number of people Theresa May managed to offend at last night's Parliamentarian of the Year awards, the Prime Minister's decision to accept her gong from George Osborne wearing the former chancellor's hard hat and high-vis jacket was pretty low-ranking. Nevertheless not one to be easily outdone, George Osborne has hit back today.

The MP for Tatton has shared a photo of him in his infamous attire, with the caption 'back with its rightful owner'.

However, Osborne doesn't have much to worry about -- Mr S can't see May returning to the attire anytime soon.
