Is it the government or the press.
We all know the media like to overstate the problems.

Because they can't find any Welsh actors for the roles?:D

This is what the US government think
Well, to be more accurate, it's not what they said. They didn't say a British accent makes you a liar. They just referred to the ones at BP media briefings. There is a world of difference there and, based on all the facts that are coming to light, there may well be some truth in the observation. As the presenter says, they must be either incompetent or lying.

Excuuuuuse me!
Pot, Kettle, Black...

When you consider the shameless stuff that they fed, the US public, media and world at large regarding that now endless problem: Iraq....

Not to mention Enron, that was hardly an exercise in transparency....

Hypochrisy really gets up my......




... nose.

21% Company shares, small investors etc.

It is in the eyes of the American public.

Certainly now, if it weren't before. And I'm sure that suits the White House beautifully.

Imagine the delicate line they would have needed to walk had it been a US founded company such as Exxon (remember Piper Alpha?)...

they forget to mention that the historic problems that BP have in the US mainly relate to the AMOCO ( american oil company ) assets that BP bought some 10 years ago.. also if the BOP stack ( Blow Out Preventer ) had been to international spec ( 2 valves ) and not US spec ( one valve ) they may have not had the Blow out.. ( rumour )

This is just the US lawyers getting ready for the feeding fenzy.. Hyenias around an injured elephant :hitler:

ohh and they have an election in November for the Senate

no mention of the 11 folk who were killed....:confused:

As you know Mr Wheal, well bred Englishmen do not tell lies.





They're called " material inaccuracies "





Not that a liar like me would know the difference.....:rolleyes:
