Update: Sometimes a picture tells a thousand words. Here’s Downing Street blue-sky thinker Steve Hilton leading Tyrie away for a chat ahead of his BBC interview. Wonder what they talked about…

Just a few days ago, senior Tory Andrew Tyrie – chair of the Treasury select committee no less – launched a scathing attack on Osborne’s economic policies, especially the lack of a plan for growth.

It’s amazing what a difference a couple of days (and perhaps a chat with the whips or Downing Street) can make.

Update: An ever better bit of footage has emerged which puts this u-turn interview in better context


Relentlessly focussed on growth Andrew? Hmmm…
