Knight: I will not take it lying down

By Şirin Özkaynak

North Cyprus “swallow” and renowned businesswoman Tina Knight caused controversy after publicly dismissing a Financial Times (FT) undercover report on alleged sexual harassment at the prestigious charity dinner at London’s Dorchester Hotel last month.

The backlash and “bullying” has now seen her replaced as chair of Uttlesford Council’s standards committee, in Essex, following a 17-2 vote on Thursday in what she described as a “kangaroo court”.
