An interesting analysis on this situation:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"This hasn’t been a good few weeks for Tony Hayward, the chief executive officer of BP. In the weeks since the huge oil spill in the Gulf began, he has struck an occasionally Churchillian tone: “We are going to defend the beaches,” he proclaimed. “We will fix this.” But the British leader he most calls to mind is Ethelred the Unready."
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Had to look up "Ethelred the Unready" and found one definition here:

Another section of the analysis:

"As the spill worsened, Hayward fretted that he and BP were its victims. “What the hell have we done to deserve this?” he reportedly told fellow executives. Of course, Hayward isn’t the victim here. The sea life, the sea itself, the employees who died, the fishermen who are losing their livelihoods, the tourism industry, responsible drillers—they’re the victims. Hayward should have been asking himself: What the hell did they do to deserve this? And what am I going to do to fix it?"

And now it's the chairman of the BP board of directors. Sounds like "musical chairs". Time to quit playing games guys and FIX THE PROBLEM !

"Senior BP directors want their chairman, Carl-Henric Svanberg, sacked because they claim his mishandling of the Gulf of Mexico disaster has turned a crisis into a catastrophe."
