So is Jarvis Cocker an economist now?
He came from Greece, he had a thirst for knowledge…

IF YOU WERE watching the BBC coverage of the Greek referendum (we refuse to call it the Greferendum) yesterday, you may have noticed a rather *cool* looking economist.

An economist with floppy hair, and glasses, and – oh wait, is that Jarvis Cocker?

This is not, in fact, the Pulp frontman – this is Robert Peston, the Economics Editor for the BBC, who has recently given himself a rock-star makeover.

Jarvis Cocker. Robert Peston. No, wait. Robert Peston, then Jarvis Cocker?
