A pleasure to lock horns
Actually if they're local businesses then shoppers probably need LESS petrol to get there.
Not if you are the owner of one of the BP stations targeted by Greenpeace. People visit a petrol station typically to fuel their cars etc and then
may buy other things such as milk, bread and the like. And these businesses has lost income today because Greenpeace felt like making a media point.
As I have said, as others have said in this thread, this action does nothing to harm BP, it just raises the media profile for Greenpeace and may help
them with their fundraising.
Speak for yourself. Good people would not willingly ruin an ecosytsem and cost hundreds of thousands of lives, aswell as lying about
And where did I say that those who directly caused the spill in GoM were good people?
Hmm but you're defending Bp. Which makes you (in my eyes) a corporate defender. This is what is ruining small business.
You must reading a different thread to me. Again, where did I defend BP? All my comments have been based on the impact on small business owners, who
are the vast majority of the owners of not only BP fuel stations but all fuel stations, and I will always defend small business from the bullying of
any organisation, and the actions of Greenpeace are nothing but bully tatics aimed at the wrong place, and not amount of any support on this thread
will change that.
Greenpeace have got this very wrong and it is sad that an organisation that does do a great deal of good in promoting environment causes, did not sit
back and think before it acted on this one.
