The Acceptable Face of Terrorism?

An extraordinary statement from Nigel Humphries, the head of an organization of militant petrol-heads called the Association of British Drivers, while responding to this week's series of letter bombings against speed camera operators and associated companies:

"In fact, it makes us feel a bit guilty that we haven't campaigned hard enough on the legitimate front against the things that we oppose, to do with criminalising and bullying motorists and because of our failure to campaign hard enough, somebody's had to resort to this."

The poor old British motorist! Forced to take up arms in their quest for "justice"! Perhaps motorists' organizations are now forming armed wings, a la the Provisional wing of the IRA, in order to obtain their political objectives.

Jeremy Clarkson has a lot to answer for.
