After reading countless threads on ATS regarding the ongoing oil disaster, or the cover-ups, or the blatant disregard for the health of the "small
people"....i decided to have a little look around the web for other BP documents.
I found this pdf below. It addresses the way Governments and Communities are dealt with by BP.
Maybe before i became a member of ATS i'd have read this and thought, "Yep they look like an unpstanding member of the business community, i mean

Even if you just watch the fascinating new ATS videos on The Mustang Conspiracy

I have to highlight just a couple of the many parts of the pdf that almost made my eyes ache from rolling.
We will not engage in bribery or corruption in any form. Corruption is the enemy of development and human progress, and we are committed to
transparency in all our dealings.
Except at the site of the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico.
We will engage constructively with all governments in whose jurisdiction we operate. We will not participate in partisan political activity,
and will make no political contributions in any country.
Maybe ammo for those that say BP donated to certain political parties during the election campaign. Some say it was BP employees, so it doesn't

We will seek to form a constructive and productive relationship with all branches of the media.
Again, except at the site of the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico.
I'm sure our members will pick out a lot more that are just laughable in this document.
