Energy giants' defender Angela Knight is former Tory MP and championed bankersFormer Tory MP Angela Knight gave up her job defending bankers last year - to rally support for rip-off energy firms instead. Ms Knight, as head of Ener

gy UK - the trade body for gas and electricity giants - was back in the news today after attacking Ed Miliband’s conference pledge to freeze fuel bills. She claimed the popular move would lead to black outs - and higher bills before the election. Ms Knight, 62, is clearly not afraid of controversy. She on

ce said: “I am who I am - if there is a fight to be had, I’m not going to run away from it.” Prior to defend

ing rip-off fuel bills, Ms Knight spent five years attacking public anger at city fatcats as head of the British Bankers Association. In 2009 Ms Knight issued a spiri

ted defence of bankers, ca

using fury at the height of the crisis. She said: “There are literally tens, if not hundreds of thousands of British jobs directly and indirectly related to banking - bringing billions of pounds in

tax income. “Some of this is now at risk and, although many are well aware of it, decision makers increasingly either wish to ignore it or even more dangerously - choose not to believe it.” She also defended bankers’ bonuses. “The question is. ‘Why are they paid? Is it for good performance?’ Well, that is the way bonuses should be and are paid. “What is essential is to reward the right sort of behaviour and not ones th

at will cause problems.” Before her job defending bankers she headed up trade body the Association of Private Client Investment Managers and Stockbrokers. Ms Knight rose to prominence as a Tory councillor on Labour-dominated Sheffield council before becoming MP for E

rewash in 1992. After rising to become Ken Clarke’s Economic Secretary, she was booted out of Parliament

in 1997. Video LoadingVideo UnavailableClick to playTap t
