In the ten years of Liberal opposition after the election of 1895, DLG became a leader of the radical wing of the Liberal party, opposing the South African War, as a result of which he was nearly lynched in a near-riot in Birmingham, which he famously escaped disguised as a policeman.

DLG began to survey the whole direction of the war with increasing skepticism; and he did not conceal his doubts from his friends who, by the end of November 1916, had become convinced that Asquith should delegate the day-to-day running of the war to a small committee whose chairman should be DLG.
