DURING a recent Parliamentary exchange, the SNP's Ross, Skye and Lochaber MP Ian Blackford described Scottish Labour as a 'beached whale'. There was some amazement when Shadow Scottish Secretary Ian Murray appeared particularly incensed by this insult, apparently believing it to be directed at him personally. Mr Blackford, who is actually more bulky than Mr Murray, then had to make clear he was referring to the entire distressed leviathan of Scottish Labour in all its present difficulties.
