Nana Mouskouri to lead ESRC

In what was described by Research Professional as a surprise move, the Government has appointed Nana Mouskouri as head of the ESRC.

'It was expected that the position would be filled by a senior researcher from the University of Oxford,' said RP. Instead, Theresa May plumped for seventies crooner Nana Mouskouri. 

'There is no truth whatsoever in the scurrilous rumour that the PM only chose her because her song 'By Persistently Praying' offered her a way forward on the Brexit negotiations,' insisted a No 10 spokesman.

Any resemblance to Prof Jennifer Rubin, Director of the Policy Institute at KCL, is, of course, entirely coincidental.
