Sir Algernon Borthwick [1830-1908] was a British journalist, who inherited the proprietorship of the "Morning Post" from his father. Borthwick not only saved the newspaper from financial ruin, but also turned it into a paper with considerable political influence. In 1886, he was returned to Parliament as member for South Kensington, London, where he was a resolute opponent of Gladstone's Home Rule Bill for Ireland.
