While I am feeling generous, I was sorry to hear this afternoon that Gaby Hinsliff is leaving her job as political editor of The Observer. She announced it on Twitter and more or less said that she wants to have a life again. Who can blame her?
Gaby's a political journalist who is trusted by everyone, and doesn't indulge in the common Sunday newspaper practice of hyping a story beyond all recognition.
I'm sure her lobby colleagues will miss her calming influence and total professionalism. I know I will.
I wish her all the very best in her new life in the country, bringing up her young family and writing to her heart's content.
