Beer, Bankruptcy and Empire

  • John Maloney


Lowe had resigned as a Times leader-writer some time before he knew he was to be Chancellor. When he returned to the (opposition) backbenches in 1874, neither he nor Delane suggested a renewal of the role. Instead Lowe became a prolific, brilliant and biting contributor to the political and literary reviews.
