There is a very young whale in the Thames. It appears to have injuries on its head. It is probably dying because nature dictated for some reason it was unfit to survive. When I was a kid, if the story was covered at all , TV news presenters would just have shrugged and said, tragic but it happens. Now its the pitiful focus of a media circus covering the well meaning but equally doomed efforts of a bunch of do gooders trying to drive the wretched creature downstream. Nature is wonderful but it is also fecking cruel. It is as if we can no longer accept the doctrine of survival of the fittest, even though it is unfolding all around us, night and day..
