Startling news from the U.S. - president Obama has said he wants BP to pay off the entire U.S. national debt because they are a bunch of naughty white boys…. And he wants them to do it by next Thursday - in addition they must solve the age old problem of creating perpetual motion and perfect faster than light travel and hand over the technology to the poor defenseless USA. This all because of an accident which happened while trying to extract oil (the benefits of which would have gone to the US tax man) which was in actual fact was being carried out by yank companies using dodgy yank equipment and workers.
He also wants the CEO of BP to be sacked for daring to have a personal opinion and failing to use crocodile tears and not reading an autocue of pre written platitudes promising the entire resources of the known universe three times over for each and every yank that got a couple of spots of oil on their stars and stripes flag.
One has to wonder if the pres has lost it as BP will ultimately hold the shoddy US companies responsible so any loss to BP will in actual fact bounce back to the USA! Perhaps he is not bright enough to see this point.
The president made no mention of paying outrageous compensation to Vietnam for deliberately dumping loads of Agent Orange on the country, strange that. He also fails to remember Union Carbide (who killed more Indians than General Custer). The things some people will do to get votes never ceases to amaze.
