World news in brief – Embassy 11 – September 2008

Rock chick in hard place

Britain’s first female ambassador to Moscow has revealed that she is a “rock chick” at heart, who once lived ten doors down from Mick Jagger and entertained the Rolling Stones lead singer when she was Ambassador to Prague.

Pringle, who was posted to Moscow during the Cold War, arrives in Moscow as relations between Moscow and London have reached a low ebb. She must feel like she’s “Back in the USSR”.
