A probe of the oil spill has not worked!
The criminals should be probed not the oil spill!
But seriously, get the damned thing plugged and then worry about the recriminations and re-criminalisations.
Lawyers will get down pn it and I am damned sure Obama will insist that one is conducted. Whether it warrants criminal investigation should be concluded by a public inquiry.
Then the inquisition should be let loose.
This is not just a disaster for the Gulf of Mexico. It has a much wider impact that those in the US may not be aware of.
The subsequent deterioration in the standing of BP in the world and the collapse of their share price will affect every single UK resident that has an investment in a pension fund.
But that palls into insignificance to the disaster that is real on the coasts of the US. May I apologise for this from a UK citizen that deplores what has happened.
