US President Barack Obama has vowed to end the "cosy relationship" between oil companies and US regulators in the light of the Gulf of Mexico disaster.
Promising "relentless" efforts to stop the oil leak, he rebuked oil industry executives for seeking to pass on blame for the disaster in Congress.
He condemned "the ridiculous spectacle of oil executives falling over each other to point the finger of blame".
Mr Obama was speaking after meeting his cabinet at the White House.
Yeah, it's a big mess, but Oil is money! We'll keep cozy with the oil companies till the cow comes home, as they represent the top 3 richest companies in the world!"
