Wellcome Oct 1, 2015: Baroness Manningham-Buller is the first woman to chair the Wellcome Trust’s Board of Governors, and was appointed following an open recruitment process. She was previously a Governor of the Wellcome Trust.

2015 - that’s two years after you, Sir Jeremy, took over as Director. You were, of course, appointed by the board of governors, on which Eliza was a key figure. Hopefully the open recruitment process was more open than your inquiry into bullying under yours and Manningham-Buller’s watch at Wellcome Trust? Or similar? Forget about that - so what made you go for the Baroness?

Wellcome: Between 2002 and 2007, Eliza Manningham-Buller was Director-General of the UK Security Service (MI5), and led the service through significant change.

Oh. So the UK’s top spy takes over at Wellcome. Maybe the idea that Wellcome is an intelligence gathering organization is not so fanciful after all...

Baroness Manningham-Buller: I am excited by the prospect of working even more closely with the Trust’s director, Jeremy Farrar .. to plan an even more ambitious future for our work.

It’s this ‘even more ambitious future for our work’ that worries me. What the heck are you guys up to?
