Although this has been carefully stated as an issue with BP, you can not disengage the UK/Scottish Govs involvement throughout the whole process,
indeed they are the ones that made the decision (lobbied or not) the fault lies at their feet.
If the Senate investigation does go ahead, given that it would need to probe the UK involvment, I can see this issue escalating into yet another round
of butting heads between the US and UK..
As an aside:
My personal opinion is that I wanted to see the appeal go ahead and what new evidence (if any) was to be presented.
