Sinking BP shares ignite trans-Atlantic rift

By lars2923 On June 10, 2010 Under Artificial Reefs, Events, Reefs, Reports

This is what cutting corners to make a profit does.

LONDON – The Gulf of Mexico oil spill risked turning into a trans-Atlantic diplomatic rift Thursday after U.S. threats to have BP fork out billions more for the disaster caused a precipitous slide in the blue-chip’s stock, hurting retirement savings for millions of Britons.

My thought: Why tell us, tell BP. They are the ones who are responsible for this mess.
 America, are you willing to give up your lively hood, your sovernty so  BP and Britons may feel good about their retirement and executives bonus’?

British lawmakers are even pushing Prime Minister David Cameron to get President Barack Obama to tone down his stinging criticism of the oil company, complaining that the hostile rhetoric will have severe implications for pensioners with nest eggs in the company.

My thought:  Again, why are the Britons complaining to us about BP’s major blunder?
