Channel 4 reports the latest in a series of letter-bomb attacks on motoring-related offices across the UK. Media speculation is that an irate motorist is reponsible for the attacks on the DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency) in Swansea, at Capita in central London (administrators of the London congestion charge) and Vantis, an accountancy firm in Wokingham, Berkshire linked to Speed Check Services, supplier of speed cameras.
Let’s hope the moron who has already injured several innocent employees is soon caught. Active protest is a long-standing and justifiable means to protest a viewpoint – but sending letter-bombs and other acts of violence are simply criminal. In the case of some animal rights groups, their actions verge on terrorism.
