McNulty trying to make a come-back?

Lobbydog has missed the little spats this blog used to have with Tony McNulty.

The former minister disappeared from the public eye after he resigned following the scandal over his shameful expenses claims – which were being looked into by the police.

But for some reason McNulty has been popping up all over the place today – this morning on Radio 4 and also on Sky News – putting across the party line on Afghanistan.

Why has the leadership fallen back on McNulty – over whose expenses there are still unanswered questions – to hit back? Why not some cabinet minister or member of the Government?

Surely it can’t be that no-one else wanted the job.
