George Osborne: Theresa May manifesto 'worst in history'

George Osborne has slammed Theresa May's manifesto and described it as the "worst in history".

After the exit poll predicted a hung parliament, the former Chancellor said the document was a "total disaster."

"I say one of the worst, I can't think of a worse one."
