Go get an F for being naive.  Everyone knows that in western countries, it is the corporations that have the most power.  For example, Dick Cheney was the CEO of Halliburton, the 2nd largest oi ...


I think you just agreed with Seneca….except yes global corporations have ties with government.. numerous governments as a rule. Thats why they are global.

Anyhew..yes BP is a large company headquartered in Britain and is arguably therefore British. The majority (or a significant proportion) of shareholdings are held by Americans, however.

BP's US  division largely employs Americans. In fact I’m not sure if there were any actual British staff employed on the rig. Certainly the head of BP US is American. Where did he vanish too when the accusations started flying?

The company responsible for the actual faulty piece of equipment was American - Transocean was based in Switzerland for tax purposes; but it’s an American company. Halliburton has also been suspiciously quiet. They share some of the responsibility too. Where did they go?

The laws that allowed this to happen were American laws. They are somewhat laxer than those in the EU. Why is this? Well because American politicians are ###s to global corporations like BP, like Exxon etc... and also share some of the responsibility for this.

Similar disasters...for example Bhopal received nothing like the response from the responsible US companies and thousands died. Be grateful it was BP because at least they are putting in billions to try and mitigate the damage they were partly responsible for; whilst others vanish into the woodwork.

Still i'm glad you choose suddenly to to share your sympathies with a Western nation. Its very warm of you.

You are not 'naive', you are dangerously ignorant, yet conceited enough to believe YOU know the culprits!

But who cares? You still look uneducated for mixing up the British people with the B ...


Exactly!  It was the british government who enabled this.  The British government chose to side with America and that blew up in their face!  Btw, the heads of BP are NOT American but mostly Swedish and British.  Go look it up.

Excluding the fact it was an accident that noone - least of all BP would have wanted to happen, how exactly did the British government 'enable' this? Would you please outline the process by which this occured? Bearing in mind what I said in my previous post?
