The Mary Creagh interview on Newsnight yesterday

One suspects, following the Mary Creagh interview on Newsnight yesterday, that Ms Creagh is standing for the Labour leadership as part of a cynical exercise in self-publicity:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006mk25

No programme of specific policies she wants to implement, no big ideas she wants to discuss, no enthusiasm to change the world (for which we should be grateful as the last thing anybody wants is Labour MPs changing the world - we've been through that before with illegal wars, open-door immigration and "no more boom and bust").

Ms Creagh is presumably calculating that her participation in the leadership contest will give her enough exposure and support to finesse her way into any subsequent Shadow Cabinet.

And who can blame her. 

The Mary Creagh MP public profile was zero before she allowed her name to go forward.
