June 15, 2010 · Print This Article

If you have been following the ongoing drama that is the BP Spill “junk shot” & “top kill” are well know terms. As well as Kevin Costner and his little known investment of 15 years and over $20 Million to create in short a Britta Oil Filter Pump which BP just yesterday said they might try, over a month after first talks. Then there is President Obama recent statement about BP’s chief executive Tony Hayward: “If he worked for me I’d sack him.”.

Which has followed most recently in BP expressing concern that the British run company which was responsible for over 97% of the industries flagrant violations is now being targeted for attacks and anti-British sentiment. A statement echoed by British Prime Minister David Cameron who warned Obama not to undermine BP’s economic value.

So in short it’s a comedy of errors without equal in some time and now there is a sketch to put that aspect into perspective. Hey! it’s either this British tragedy or a video about the other one no one wants to see anymore :)
