Horatio William Bottomley, MP for Hackney South 1906-1912 and 1918-1922
The following biography of Horatio Bottomley appeared in the March 1971 issue of the
Australian monthly magazine "Parade":-
'A visitor to England's Wormwood Scrubs Prison one day in 1922 recognised a podgy little man
sitting in a yard and busily stitching up mailbags. "Ah, there, Bottomley," the visitor remarked
brightly. "Sewing?" The prisoner was Horatio Bottomley, former Member of Parliament, arch
swindler and rogue and golden-tongued financial racketeer who fleeced 10 million crooked
pounds in 40 years of flamboyant rascality. He did not bother to look up and merely grunted:
"No, not sewing - reaping."
 
'Probably no other share swindler and crook in history achieved such eminence as Horatio
Bottomley. As an orator he could sway an audience and many people believed he could well
have been Prime Minister of England had he set his mind to it. He rose from orphan waif to
millionaire sportsman, newspaper editor and publisher, Member of the House of Commons and
amateur lawyer who could confound the best legal brains in England. Underneath, Bottomley
remained an oily fraud who could not resist the lure of easy money - from crooked companies,
fraudulent lotteries and even blackmail. He spent his loot on champagne for breakfast, a stable
of horses, a huge country estate and a harem of mistresses on whom he lavished apartments
and jewellery and backed in disastrous stage shows. When the law eventually caught up with
him he ended as a convict in Wormwood Scrubs stitching those mail-bags for a few cents a 
day.
'Horatio Bottomley was born in London on March 23, 1860, son of a tailor. Before he was five
his father had died of tuberculosis and his mother was in an insane asylum. Packed off to an
orphanage in Birmingham he ran away to London at 14 and got a job in a Cheapside clothing
factory. A few months later he talked a drunken solicitor into taking him on as office boy.
Shrewd and sharp as a ferret he got a good grounding in financial rackets and frauds operating
on just the right side of the law before his crooked employer was eventually arrested and 
imprisoned. 
'Then 20, Bottomley married and persuaded a former client of the solicitor to put up £1000 to
buy a small publishing business. Within a few years he had transformed it into the Hansard 
Union Company capitalised at £1,000,000 and was selling the gullible investing public shares to 
that amount. Out of the cash that flowed in Bottomley paid a dividend of 12 per cent, with 
the result that he had no trouble unloading another million dollars worth of shares. He then
calmly "borrowed" some of the cash and dashed off to Austria where he bought 13 different
printing works for £200,000. Back in London he sold them back to this own company for
£600,000 and pocketed the difference.
 
'For years Bottomley milked the Hansard Union Company with similar dodges, but in 1893
shareholders' complaints brought an official investigation and Bottomley went on trial for mis-
appropriation. More than £1 million had just disappeared, but Bottomley had tangled the 
company's affairs so effectively and conducted his own defence so brilliantly that after a six-
week trial the jury acquitted him. He then turned to Western Australian gold mines and by the
turn of the century had sold British investors £10 million worth of shares in scores of 
companies owning worthless claims in the Western Australian bush.
 
'Much of the money found itself into Bottomley's own pocket. Stocky, ever-smiling and with a
magnetic personality he was seen at racecourses, restaurants, fashionable parties and
influential political gatherings. During the week he lived in a luxury Pall Mall apartment. On
Fridays he retired to his 30-room mansion, The Dicker, near Eastbourne where Mrs. Bottomley
was kept conveniently out of the way.
 
'Only one of the gold mines Bottomley floated proved of any value. He was flabbergasted when
he received the news that one of his smaller companies - with a capital of a mere £325,000 - 
had located some real gold. However, he soon recovered his wits and before the news got out
persuaded the shareholders to exchange their certificates for those of another of his 
companies. "This is a much more promising speculation I am reserving for my oldest clients,"
he wrote to them. A few months later the shares of the first concern skyrocketed and the
dummies who now held them for Bottomley sold out for £1 million. With that windfall he became
a patron of the turf by purchasing £125,000 of bloodstock. He also acquired the London Sun 
newspaper and in a single deal snapped up six London theatres.
'In 1902 Bottomley had visions of being elected to Parliament by the London slum electorate
of South Hackney. His campaign was going well until a rival newspaper printed a vitriolic attack
on him. It called him "a bare-faced swindler" concocting schemes to rob and cheat and 
declared his proper place was "at the Old Bailey - not Westminster." Bottomley ignored the 
blast, but it cost him the seat, for he missed election by only a few hundred votes. However,
he tried again in 1906 and romped home.
'By that time the gold boom had collapsed and having spent his profits on his publishing and
theatrical ventures he was running a London bucket shop called the Joint Stock Institute. In
three years Bottomley sold about £2½ million worth of shares in the Joint Stock Institute,
although it was only capitalised at a quarter of that amount. The excess consisted of bogus
and forged shares. Millions bearing the same serial numbers were sold over and over again. It
was blatant fraud. Even in his gold mining ventures shareholders did have legitimate shares in
a proper company and there was a slight chance gold might be found in its mine. But with the
Joint Stock Institute Bottomley was working a gigantic confidence trick, and amazingly he got
away with it - but only just. 
 
'Complaints from shareholders who did not get dividends eventually brought an official 
investigation. As a result, early in 1909 Bottomley was again in the dock charged with fraud. 
He defended himself through the 29-day trial as scores of people came forward and testified
they had been defrauded, yet somehow he managed to convince the jury that although the
investors' money was gone it was all a gigantic mistake and certainly Horatio Bottomley was
not responsible. What had seemed an open-and-shut case gradually slipped away from the
prosecution as it let Bottomley divert attention from his obvious guilt in duplicating shares.
Finally, he made a five-hour speech in which he pointed out that, despite the alleged duplic-
ation, no two people had been brought forward to show they had received shares with the
same numbers. "I say," Bottomley's voice rose to a dramatic climax, "radical and democrat as
I call myself, I still revere the traditions, the prestige and the power of the law. I do not 
hesitate today, hunted, hounded and harassed on all sides, to come to you, a jury of my 
peers, to give me sanctuary from official persecution."
 
'Once again Horatio Bottomley was acquitted in triumph. When he emerged from the court a
free man, spectators sang For He's A Jolly Good Fellow. A few days later Bottomley addressed
an enthusiastic meeting in his electorate of South Hackney. Supporters carried banners with 
the captions, Vindicated and Victory, but he had not learned a lesson and was soon up to his
old tricks to replenish his finances. Shortly after the trial he wrote to an associate: "What 
have you done with our nugget - the one we used to show shareholders in the old Western
Australian days? I have just got hold of a promising client. All he wants is a sight of the stuff."
 
'By such means Bottomley kept afloat financially until 1911 when the executors of one of his
victims won a verdict for the return of £50,000 lent to him. He did not have the money and
bankruptcy followed. That meant he had to resign his House of Commons seat. Aside from
that, bankruptcy had little effect on Bottomley's way of life. He somehow managed to hang
on to The Dicker and also his weekly paper, John Bull. With John Bull he began blackmailing
other city sharks as crooked as himself, including a financial wizard named Alfred Carpenter
who appropriated £5 million from a private bank [the Charing Cross Bank] he started. Well 
aware of what Carpenter was up to, Bottomley called on him, produced a wad of shares in one 
of his old defunct companies and demanded a loan of £5000. Carpenter pointed out that the 
shares were worthless. "So is your bank," retorted Bottomley, who then made it clear that 
unless he got the loan - and further sums from time to time - he would expose Carpenter's 
frauds in John Bull. Carpenter duly paid and the blackmail racket continued until his death 
three years later - by which time Bottomley had gouged £20,000 from him.
'During World War I Bottomley decided that if Carpenter could do it so could he. He started his
own bank, paid 8 per cent interest and kept it going until he went to gaol in 1922 when 
deposits of £220,000 were found to have vanished. The war itself was a golden opportunity 
for Bottomley as he took to the recruiting platform and toured the country making speeches. 
The Government paid him fees of up to £200 for each speech urging the young men of 
England to remember their "glorious heritage" and enlist to make the nation safe.
 
'During the war he thought up a new racket in running a sweepstakes from Switzerland on big
English horse races such as the Derby and Grand National. Bottomley paid a prize of £15,000,
but still showed a profit of £250,000 from each different sweepstakes or glorified lottery. When
war conditions temporarily halted racing he made his sweeps guessing competitions. The
money still rolled in and Bottomley was able to pay off some of his old liabilities. As a result in
December 1918 he was granted his discharge from bankruptcy. Then, despite his record, the
man's remarkable personality persuaded the electors of South Hackney to put him back into 
the House of Commons. 
 
'Once more a respected MP, Bottomley plunged into his last swindle, another intricate lottery
ramp from which he collected about £1 million in three years. All might have gone well had he 
not grown greedy. Despite the huge profits he could not keep his fingers out of the till and
misappropriated some government bonds set aside as prizes. In 1922 a disgruntled employee
tipped off the police. The subsequent investigation disclosed the defalcations and Bottomley
drew seven years' imprisonment. That was the end of Horatio Bottomley. He once more lost 
his seat in Parliament and was in his late 60s when released from gaol.'
Sir William James Bull, MP for Hammersmith 1900-1918 and Hammersmith
South 1918-1929
The following report is taken from the 'Los Angeles Times' of 8 January 1910.
'Pugilism has become a regular feature of the British political contest. Occasional fist
fights have occurred in various parts of the country, from the opening of the struggle
[i.e. the January 1910 General Election], but until the last few days they have been
confined to the less notable meetings. Now, however, they are in vogue in much higher
quarters. Male electioneers and their hecklers have ceased to combine against the
Suffragettes and [have] begun to maul each other.
'Yesterday the pugilistic infection…….seized in virulent form that well-known knight,
Sir William Bull. Sir William was trying to make a speech to a crowd of workingmen at
Hammersmith. One of his hearers repeatedly interrupted him and finally called him a
liar. The titled gentleman sprung over the door of his motor car into the midst of the
crowd, crying:
"I'll punch your head!"
"Come on," replied the interrupter.
'Sir William came on and the crowd chivalrously made room. Tariff reform, the budget,
socialism and the German peril quickly gave way to something more concrete. Sir William
did what he said he would and punched the fellow's head, but the other chap was busy too.
'He caved in Sir William's silk hat, peeled the skin from Sir William's left temple and tore off
one sleeve of Sir William's frock coat. The crowd roared with delight until at last the police
stopped the fight. Sir William resumed his place in the car, saying that he had thoroughly
enjoyed himself.'
Sir Roland Jennings, MP for Hallam division of Sheffield 1939-1959
 
Clause 24 of the Succession to the Crown Act of 1707 specified "that no person who shall 
have in his own name, or in the name of any person or persons in trust for him, or for his 
benefit, any new office or place of profit whatsoever under the crown, which at any time 
since the five and twentieth day of October in the year of our lord one thousand seven
hundred and five have been created or erected ... shall be capable of being elected, or 
sitting and voting in the House of Commons in any Parliament which shall be hereafter
summoned and holden."
Clause 25 of the same Act specified that "nevertheless that such person shall be capable of
being again elected as if his place had not become void as aforesaid". The effect of Clause 
25 was that any member of the House of Commons who accepted government office or a 
place of profit under the Crown was obliged to step down from the House and contest a
by-election; if they won the by-election, the individual in question could then continue to
serve both as an MP and as a minister or holder of a place of profit in compliance with the
law.
As a result, between 1707 and 1926, there was a regular succession of by-elections 
triggered by the requirement for newly appointed ministers (or MPs appointed to an office
of profit under the Crown) to submit themselves for re-election. In the overwhelming
majority, such by-elections were uncontested, but, on the other hand, there have been a
reasonable number of by-elections which were fought out and the incumbent member was
defeated. For example, when Winston Churchill was appointed President of the Board of
Trade in 1908, he was defeated in the resulting by-election for his seat of Manchester NW.
The legislation governing the need for such by-elections was gradually watered down during
the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The Reform Act of 1867 removed the 
necessity of re-election when a member moved from one office to another; the Re-election
of Ministers Act of 1919 made re-election unnecessary within nine months of a general 
election, and the Re-election of Ministers Act Amendment Act of 1926 finally abolished the
requirement for a by-election altogether.
 
It nevertheless remained the case that any member who accepted any other Crown office
was obliged to comply with the law and vacate their office, a state of affairs which 
persisted beyond 1926. The problem was, however, that there was no real definition of 
what constituted an 'office or place of profit under the Crown.' This lack of definition 
caused a number of problems during the 1950s, with at least three cases being heard by a
House of Commons Select Committee during 1954 and 1955. 
Following the 1955 general election, the election of Sir Roland Jennings was found to be 
invalid because he held an office of profit under the Crown. For over 30 years, Jennings had
audited the accounts of his local club. In order to do so, he had to be appointed as a Public
Auditor, an office the appointments to which were made by the Treasury. Jennings' charge
for the annual audit was a token one guinea per annum, which was paid by the club rather
than by the Treasury. However, it was still held that his role as a public auditor was an 
office of profit under the Crown. Other instances of MPs who were found to be inadvertently
in breach of the rules are outlined at the foot of this note.
In July 1955, legislation was rushed through Parliament which validated Sir Roland's election.
Finally, in 1957, the House of Commons Disqualification Act, which was in turn replaced by a
similar Act in 1975, was passed. This latter act specifically states: "Except as provided by 
this Act, a person shall not be disqualified for membership of the House of Commons by 
reason of his holding an office or place of profit under the Crown or any other office or
place; and a person shall not be disqualified for appointment to or for holding any office or
place by reason of his being a member of that House." Attached to the Act is a listing, 
which runs to over 50 pages, of those offices which continue to disqualify a person from 
sitting in the House of Commons.
Other similar instances include:-
Arthur Jenkins, MP for Pontypool 1935-1946: - Jenkins was Parliamentary Private Secretary
to Clement Attlee when he was appointed to the unpaid post of chairman of a local appeal
board for a Royal Ordnance Factory. Notwithstanding that the post was unpaid, he was held
to be in breach of the law and a special act indemnifying him was passed.
Niall Macpherson, MP for Dumfriesshire 1945-1963: - Macpherson had accepted an 
appointment as Chairman of the London agency of the Dried Fruits Control Board, a body
constituted under Australian legislation. A special Act was passed in May 1954 to indemnify
him.
John George, MP for Pollok division of Glasgow 1955-1964: - in 1947, George had been 
appointed by the Minister of Works as Chairman of Scottish Slate Industries Ltd., to which
company the Minister of Works had authorized a loan on the condition that he should
nominate two directors. George received no payment apart from reimbursement of expenses
but was held to occupy a place of profit. He was indemnified by the same Act which 
indemnified Sir Roland Jennings.
Even as late as 1974, the House had to pass a motion which ignored the technical 
disqualification of Dr. Michael Winstanley (MP for Cheadle 1966-1970 and Hazel Grove Feb -
Oct 1974), who was a sessional medical officer at a Royal Ordnance Factory.
