Who is John Gorst?

I refer below in a long post to a feller called Sir John Gorst, which has caused rather a lot of head scratching and cries to elucidate.

Wikipedia is a bit crap on this chap - but basically as well as a host of very Victorian doings amongst natives and whatnot he reorganised the Conservative Party at the local organisation level, which had got into a state sorting out finances, candidates and local selection in essence creating the first decent party structure.

We need something similar to happen now, to re-energise the local parties and in many cases resurrect them. But who is the man...
