And the Israelites thought getting out of Egypt was a struggle. Those Britons unfortunate enough to be going away this bank holiday weekend have our sympathy. They are faced with railway line closures, widespread road works, cancelled flights and, of course, floods. The descent of a plague of locusts is no doubt only a matter of time. Whoever it was who said that travelling is better than arriving obviously never sat in heavy traffic on the M25 for two hours, trying to reach Heathrow airport. All that is left for us is to echo Moses and make a final appeal to the gods of transport chaos this weekend: "Let those people go."
