Yasmin Alibhai-Brown: Religions should not be allowed to make ghettos – The Independent
No love lost between Yasmin and Cristina. I know whose side I’m on.
I cannot stand Cristina Odone, and the feeling is mutual. We haven’t spoken for years, since the week when, as deputy editor of the New Statesman, she commissioned a hatchet profile on me by a female journalist (of course), who had met me once on a radio show. Even I, well used to abrasive attacks, was knocked back by the virulence in a left-wing magazine I had previously worked for. Time has not healed that bruise, and never will.
