Supplehouse, Mr

A newspaperman, an intimate friend of Nathaniel Sowerby, and an MP who was backed by the ‘Jupiter’ for a place in the Cabinet.

He was greatly hated by Harold Smith, who announced, "There is a man endowed by no great talent, enjoying no public confidence, untrusted as a politician, and unheard of even as a writer by the world at large, and yet, because he is on the staff of the 'Jupiter' he is able to overturn the government and throw the whole country into dismay" - Framley Parsonage
