George Osborne 'locks milk in Treasury fridge' – says his deputy Danny Alexander

George Osborne has been accused by his own deputy of being so tight-fisted that he keeps his milk in the Treasury fridge “under lock and key”.

Danny Alexander, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury, said that the Chancellor refused to share his refreshments and that he used a padlock on his “double-size” office fridge.

The Lib Dem minister offered the gem about his Tory senior at a Westminster lunch for political journalists, and said that he put Mr Osborne’s protective nature down to the fact that he went to St Paul’s, a public school in London.

“We do share things – but not the milk, which to my amusement he still keeps under lock and key,” he said.

Well I never! - milk snatchers in the Treasury.


The conservative feels safe and content only if he is assured that some higher wisdom watches and supervises change, only if he knows that some authority is charged with keeping the change "orderly.

In other words a bunch of cap-doffers and forelock tuggers.
