Did she miss a memo?

I see that Labour MSP Pauline McNeill has refused to acknowledge the lesson of Ms Capulet. Her intervention in the Health debate from last week:
Pauline McNeill (Glasgow Kelvin) (Lab): On a point of order, Presiding Officer. The member cannot continue to misname the Scottish Labour Party as new Labour. Surely we are entitled to our proper title in this chamber.
Her party's website, however, sees things a little differently. In the top right hand corner she could find the legend "new Labour for Scotland". Or perhaps denial is no longer in Egypt?
Ee-aw, ee-aw, 'e always calls me that.

Pauline McNeill also gets it wrong - the name of the registered party is The Labour Party - not Scottish Labour Party.

The Scottish Labour Party is a mere accounting unit, which puts it into the same legal position as, say, Scunthorpe CLP.
