    Proof positive that whales aren't intelligent after all.

    SGG ought to pop down with her japtrannytastic band friends and harpoon it for sport.

    Fears for Thames whale
    ==================

    This is a day when television simply cannot resist a sensational picture story. For the first time since records began in 1913, a whale has found its way all the way up the Thames past the House of Commons to the salubrious wastes of Chelsea. It’s a northern bottlenose whale. My amateur observations suggest that its size and lack of barnacles render it a relatively young whale -- this is added to the theory that its mother is somewhere off Southend.

    English waters are generally too shallow for whales and they are effectively never seen in such close proximity in domestic life. It has been flapping around in shallow waters for the last six hours and one’s sense is that it will not survive.

    A rescue effort is underway but I am afraid the chainsaw and the funeral pyre are not far away. Even as I write that there are people in this newsroom tut-tutting at my pessimism; little do they do now know what an expert I am as I go every year whale watching in Cape Cod.

    Bottlenose whales don't grow much bigger than that one is now.
