Sorry to bring this news to you, but BP took responsibility, is paying out liabilities, have just open a trust fund, and guess what, they most be guilty of the spill to do all that and be willing to lose billions in the process.

Case close my friend. . .



Because that was the deal when they leased the rig. That they are ultimately accountable. The OP makes a very valid point being ignored by the vast majority of people on this forum. A lot of different companies from a lot of different countries are involved.

So by your rationale tomorrow morning I am going to march down to the local Ford dealer lease a vehicle then promptly upon taking possession of it I am going to drive into a group of innocent people. When the police arrive on scene I am going to let them know that Ford motor company should share in 50% of the restitution and damage charges because they were the manufacturer of the vehicle. Then when I arrive in court I will promptly let the judge know that I should share in less than 50% of the responsibility of the damage and restitution due to the fact that I only made the decisions behind the wheel of the vehicle and it was ultimately Fords responsibility for not putting in place enough safety features to prevent the accident that I took 100% part in creating.

Does this even sound slightly logical? No it doesn't to answer my own question. So all you cry babies that think BP shouldn't be responsible need to reevaluate the situation at hand and ask yourself if they aren't responsible then why did they claim responsibility?


Cry babies. That says it all really.

Tired nonsense, please don't propogate this kind of BS. This is what gives the British proper reason to think we're twats - we're riding on something that happened more than 60 years ago to get us out of intelligent discussion.

There wasn't one... just a couple threads that vaguely referenced hack job stories in the Daily Mail claiming that Americans were bashing the Brits, but contained nothing to actually back it up... drama for drama's sake really.

Apparently this is yet another attempt to do just that.

The irony is no one I know even cares who owns the company. It's multinational, a lot of hands in that one cookie jar. All we care about is getting the leak capped and having whoever does own the company to pay for the cleanup... which they've already agreed to do.

Now that I think about it, I really don't see what the point was in even starting this thread

39 % is not a controlling interest.

Lets deny ignorance some more. Who own the controlling interest in BP?

Edit:

The UK or that is to say people in it own 40 %.

10 % by the rest of the UK

7% by the rest of the world and

4% by Misc.

www.bp.com...

Someone here thinks Nathan Rothschild own the majority interest or the most shares per any one person:

www.blurtit.com...

With the Queen also holding major shares, but these I have no conformation for.

What I find most interesting about the above link is this quote from an unnamed source:

" I've got bout 500 shares of it & not selling !!! Hint: "This too will pass" (And a JUICY DIVIDEND WHILE YOU WAIT !!! If it keeps dropping, (which it will not go much further due to the FAT Div), I'm gonna pick up more !!! BP HAS TONS OF CASH on the Balance Sheet, PLUS INSURANCE for spills like this !! Remember the Exxon Valdez ??? If you bought it right after the spill, YOU MADE A "BOAT LOAD" !! LOL - PUN INTENDED !!! ;-) "

BP paid for everything you mentioned above maybe?.. They were operating the rig at the time of the disaster and they are responsible for the clean up operation. I don't agree with the anti British sentiment that is simply ridiculous, but I think you'll find that this view is not actually as rampant on ATS as you seem to believe.

I just wish some people would drop this BS, but you see it so many times. Believe me, there are twats amongst us all. Some are just bigger than others.

Yes and so do they:

BP plc[2] is a British-based global energy company which is the third largest energy company and the fourth largest company in the world. As a multinational oil company ("oil major"), BP is the United Kingdom's largest corporation, with its headquarters in St James's, City of Westminster, London.[3][4][5] BP America's headquarters is in the One Westlake Park in the Energy Corridor area of Houston, Texas.[6] The company is among the largest private sector energy corporations in the world, and one of the six "supermajors" (vertically integrated private sector oil exploration, natural gas, and petroleum product marketing companies).[7] The company is listed on the London Stock Exchange, New York Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the FTSE 100 Index.

Since the 20 April 2010 explosion of the Deepwater Horizon and subsequent oil spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, in which 11 people died, BP's public standing and stock value have dropped substantially, losing nearly half of its market capitalization.[8] The disaster, involving a leaking deep water oil well, has devastated a vast area of the United States marine environment, killed sealife and has a serious impact on the local fishing industry. Efforts at containing the spill were at first ineffective but some progress has been made since the fitting of a cap to stem the leak[9].

What do you need to know the fact that BP has a 39% american ownership or the fact that the falkland islands is still in dispute with Argentina. I am no where close to the top of the supreme knowledge as you say. The fact that anybody from england or anywhere else for that matter think that we are trying to be the victims in this diaster is utter rubbish. I guess that people do not know the seriousness of the situation going on here.This is going to affect our future here. So if that is a problem then too bad.

British Petroleum IS a BRITISH company. Their responsibility.

However America will always have a hand in any major disaster somehow.

Its the 4th largest company in the world.

All this argument is pathetic.


No point crying over spilt oil/milk...

Thats no problem, and you are right. I just let my fingers do the walking before I let my brain do the talking. I apologize for that. I am just tired of seeing people from england or anywhere for that matter talking down to us for something that will reshape the face of this nation for many,many years to come. I was just shooting from the hip,which I don't do usually.
