Where's Rawnsley?

Last week Guido published some pretty damning evidence that Andrew Rawnsley had lifted vast swathes of his column almost word for word from a previous edition of the Economist. He has been silent about it ever since despite the chance to comment or refute the allegations. Yesterday the “the Observer’s award-winning Chief Political Commentator” was conspicuously absent from the paper, instead he was replaced by Joanna Biggs, the assistant editor at the London Review of Books. Guido hopes he is just on his holidays and not in trouble? Anyone missing Andrew’s insight too much should probably just buy a copy of the Economist…
