It is true that the politician, in his professional character, does not always, or even very often, conform to the most approved pattern of private conduct.
Men who are engaged in public life must necessarily aim at reducing opposition to a minimum, and one of the most obvious means to that end is by misrepresenting, discrediting or ruining their opponents.

|Profession:||Businessman, Lawyer, Writer|
Frederick Scott Oliver was a British political writer and businessman who advocated tariff reform and imperial union for the British Empire. He played an important role in the Round Table movement, collaborated in the downfall of Prime Minister H.H. Asquith’s wartime government and its replacement by David Lloyd George in 1916, and pressed for “home rule all round” to resolve the political conflict between Britain and Irish nationalists. He practiced law for three years, but he abandoned this career to marry Katharine Augusta M’Laren. He subsequently joined the linen drapery firm of Debenham & Freebody, becoming a partner in 1904. In 1906 he published the biography Alexander Hamilton. He also wrote numerous political articles for The Times using the pseudonym “Pacificus.”
