Of course this case was not as straightforward as the press made it appear, because at his trial it transpired that Albert Dryden had been victimised, humiliated and degraded by planning officers over a long period of time. It was revealed that a reporter was pressurised not to publicise details of the victimisation of Mr Dryden because the planning officer was a friend of the Chief Constable of Durham, and a brother Mason.
On the occasion that led to his arrest he had launched a very large rocket in the vicinity of an RAF Vulcan bomber which was flying at low level over Derwentside and Weardale.

There is a similar, albeit more extreme example, oddly causing fewer deaths, of a fellow who built an armoured vehicle out of a plant vehicle and some compound materials of his own manufacture, and did millions of pounds in property damage, before offing himself when his rig suffered a mechanical fault and ground to a halt.
When people make peaceful revolution impossible, they make violent revolution inevitable. This seems to have been an example of just such a thing. Its very sad of course, but it would do politics in general a great deal of good for those engaged in it to be more afraid of the people than they are. It might induce them to make choices which benefit us, rather than decide things to our detriment.
