Crime writer Val McDermid tries to solve a mystery: did the suffragette Emily Wilding Davison intend to die when she was trampled by the King's horse at the Derby of 1913?

Probably not as others have considered. But she did get noticed.

Apparently she bought a return ticket. The video of her shows she was deliberately looking for the Kings Horse.

Wow. I'm only aware of this incident because one of my favorite mini series was a 6 part series called "The Great War and the Making of the Twentieth Century". In setting the background to events, they show the moving picture of this event. It certainly seems that she put herself in harm's way so if she was rationally thinking of this beforehand, she must have known that it was quite likely she'd be killed or permanently impaired.

..... if she was rationally thinking of this beforehand .....

Idealists don't always think through the consequences of their actions, either for themselves or for the effects on others.

This phrase always reminds me of a Two Ronnies sketch.

They are supposed to be the headmaster and headmistress of two single sex schools that are joining together. After various sexual inuendo jokes it is announced that the school motto will be changed from "Deeds not words" to "Words not deeds".

Perhaps there is something in this as a reappraisal of Jingo-ism and the application of a bit of diplomacy.
