The press was full of pictures of the destruction caused by a flash flood in the Cornish village of Boscastle. Thank goodness no one died, but a lot of cars did.
Strikes me that this is divine intervention. Until we stop screwing up the environment there will be an increasing number of these storms which will precisely target and destroy the real cause of so many our problems - cars. Mini typhoons following the M25 orbital motorway next? Or will we see a final immolation scene with a giant flood wiping all the cars off the face of the earth? - or have I been listening to too much Wagner?
