BP should pay the £59 million max liability and walk away from its operation. The company must survive this unforseen accident.Not one more British company to go into foreign hands.especially as America caused the Global crash with lehmans and the pyrimid scheme of all time.

Whoever takes over will have to drill and build an oil well and employ people to gather oil from the well. BP management will certainly lose jobs due to redundancy but unlikely that too many of those will be from the gulf.

This is a company that has a market cap of only $114 billion on annual revenue of $265 billion.

The only thing gushing faster than Macondo is BP’s revenues. The world is thirstily drinking up every drop of oil that BP doesn’t dump into the gulf. It is touching how Obama and his massive entourage power into the gulf to speechify on huge quantities of the product that BP produces.

Anybody want to take bets on when Air Force One switches to solar power?

What of their fates? Many of them have nothing to do with this issue yet everyone is keen to sacrifice thousands of innocent workers jobs for the sake of ‘moral satisfaction’ (read that as revenge) for an organisation that powers your entire lives.

Let them who is not in a better place for hydrocarbons cast the first rock.

If the fine amount is at all proportionate to the damage caused, BP ought to just hand over their keys to the American taxpayer, lock stock and barrel. Of course, all the other impacted Gulf countries might want executive washroom access as well.
