A whale of a sight

No link here yet but try the BBC. As I write there is the extraordinary sight of a rather large deep sea whale engaged in water activities outside the House of Commons. Having swum up the Thames to parliament, one wonders if it might be there to protest about pollution.

In their ignorance, the TV newsfeeds are still refering to it as an "animal" wheras it is actually a "mammal" of a species known to have a degree of intelligence. Sadly, it doesn't have the words to communicate with us. A rescue attempt (eviction) will be underway shortly. It is a remarkable sight.
