Caroline Flint prepping for reality TV circuit?

Caroline Flint is definitely an attention seeker. After quitting Gordon Brown's cabinet last Friday (the announcement was timed for maximum impact as it came during a press conference that Brown was giving), she is still stirring things up.
She is quoted in Today's Observer as follows:

The former Europe minister, who resigned on Friday saying that she had been used as "window-dressing", launched a broadside against the PM, complaining of "this constant pressure, this negative bullying".

Asked if Brown had a problem with women, she retorted: "I don't know. It would have been nice to have had more conversations about the policy areas I was involved with. But we didn't, so I don't know that. You've only got to look and see where women are in cabinet and where they aren't: and they aren't in positions of power, they aren't running spending departments. There's only Yvette [Cooper] now who's actually running a spending department."

She gets my Attention Seeker of the Day award (who knows it could become a regular feature). Clearly she would be great on the reality TV circuit and I am sure she is sorting out an agent. Perhaps even Max Clifford will recognize that X factor prerequisite - the love of seeing your own image in the media.

I just wanted to show that it's not all gravitas here.
