Theresa Villiers, the Tory economics spokesman, said Mrs Kroes had been singled out for a parliamentary lynching because of her rare experience in the real world, serving on more than 30 company boards in a wide-ranging business career. "The socialists were out to get her as target number one because they know she's going to push a free-market agenda," she said.
