George Osborne has defended claims that his takeaway meal was a gourmet burger, costing £9.70, he told Daybreak: "McDonald's doesn't deliver, I was working late in the office."
The Chancellor, who tweeted the image of himself working late on his spending review speech eating a burger and chips, was on the front page of The Sun this morning as the newspaper alleged his takeaway meal was from trendy diner Byron.
He said: "As a politician you've got this dilemma which is the only thing people see of you is you're in the House of Commons, in a television studio.
"The point about Twitter is to try and tell people more about what you're doing every day, and there I am working late on my speech, and I've got a takeaway hamburger, but it gets put on the front page of The Sun… occupational hazard."
