Sharp Axes

From the MCB letter quoted in an earlier post:

We know that there are a clique of Islamophobic journalists (including Nick Cohen, Michael Gove, Melanie Phillips, Martin Bright and John Ware), each with a sharp axe to grind, who have desperately and repeatedly tried to malign the MCB and other important Muslim institutions.

That's a lovely thought: Nick Cohen (Euston Manifesto Decent Left) and Melanie Phillips (Daily Mail Strident Right), Martin Bright (New Statesman Unreconstructed Socialist) and Michael Gove (Libertarian Tendency Tory MP) forging "closer and more lasting friendships" and "sharing a sense of belonging". Perhaps that's why their axes are so sharp.
