REES-MOGG ruined former Chancellor George Osborne for his awful attack on PM May during a live radio Q&A.
The Conservative MP laid into Osborne after he was quoted as saying he would not rest until the Prime Minister “was chopped up in bags in my freezer.”
MP Reese-Mogg said: “I think this type of bitterness and bile ends up making the person who has that bitterness and bile feel resentful and sad and has no effect on broader politics.
“The sadness of George Osborne is that he is a formidably able man. He served with distinction as Chancellor of the Exchequer and he has decided since leaving parliament to emulate a rather less successful Edward Heath.”
On the live Q&A on LBC, he said he was disappointed by the comments because of Mr Osborne’s intelligence and his former ministerial role.
He went on to say the outbursts were not to be taken seriously as they only provided a “form of entertainment” for the political class who found him “quite amusing.”
The North East Somerset MP said: “His firepower diminishes with every bitter outburst and for so able a man that is something we should be sad about rather than particularly condemn.”
Esquire magazine reported Mr Osborne, now editor of the Evening Standard, had made the gruesome “chopping” comment to “more than one person” at the newspaper.

After the June general election, Mr Osborne said the Prime Minister was a “dead woman walking” for losing the Conservative majority.
Mrs May responded to the comments saying: “The contents of the former chancellor’s freezer are probably not a matter for me.
