Bitch Fight

MediaMonkey at the Guardian has got his paws on an email exchange, which was sparked Julie Burchill’s letter to the Sunday Times Letters page, responding to Ms Knight’s peculiar “I’ve Got a Filthy Shadow” article:

From: Julie Burchill

Dear India Knight,
I dare you to walk into any mosque – after covering your filthy female head in the Islamist fashion, of course – and spread your glad tidings that “Muslims are the new Jews.”
You’ll be lucky if you get out alive.
Yours sincerely,
JB
PS: I see that your new book is a compilation of ‘dirty bits’ from novels. I’d love to know how this fits in with your new found love of feminine modesty and discretion.

From: India Knight

Oh, for fuck’s sake. I don’t have a “newfound love of modesty and discretion” – I just don’t despise people on the basis of what they wear.
Regards,
IK

What, not even the working class slags in crop tops you’re forever slagging off, you hypocritical snob?

To: Julie Burchill
From: India Knight

I do NOT slag off working class people in crop tops, you fucking loon. Where? When? Why would I slag them off? I am many things but I am not a snob. God, you’re driving me mad. Go away.

To: India Knight
From: Julie Burchill

I wrote to the letters page, not YOU, you stalking cretin. Why dont you fuck off and turn yet another of your husbands gay?
