Shell unveils £1.5million-an-hour profits


www.tiscali.co.uk

Shell has reignited anger over excessive profits after revealing it made 27.6 billion US dollars (£13.9 billion) in 2007 - a new record for a UK company.

The figure - equivalent to more than £1.5 million an hour - prompted a fresh call from unions for a windfall tax on oil companies. It also comes at a time when motorists are paying forecourt petrol prices of more than £1 a litre.

Shell pay a huge amount in corporation tax, provide jobs in the UK and contribute hugely to the UK economy.

well, for one thing these, as you call them fat cats, did not venture into
buying up all those mortgage bonds & other fraudlent investment paper.
They focused and concentrated on what they Know & do best...


secondly, I would look on that accumulation of wealth as 'Tribute'
or as the modern version of the ancient pantheon of god's...


Today's 'Shell' is an entity, a god in it's own right....
& Shell must amass wealth to increase it's power and reach to combat/parry the other god's of Energy (think Haliburton, EXxon, Occidental, BP, etc)
and their own nefarious tactics of resource/energy sequestering.



~all hail to the multinational energy 'gods' who give us modern conviences and a higher standard of living,,,for a small piece of one's life energy~
