BP CEO Tony Hayward has suggested the oil spill clean-up workers who were hospitalized this week might have been suffering from food poisoning. (This while BP continues to insist workers don’t need to wear respirators.) He went on camera to say “I’m sorry” and directly contradicted numerous marine scientists on the scene by claiming there is no underwater oil plume. Finally he whined, “I would like my life back”!
It’s amazing the stuff that keeps coming from this man’s mouth. Seriously, doesn’t BP have a Board of Directors or something with sense enough to keep this man quiet?
The first rule of survival when you find yourself in a hole is to stop digging. If BP doesn’t take this guy’s shovel away from him, somebody in Louisiana will. And then they’ll bury him with it.
One thought on “BP CEO Hayward wants his life back”
Tony Hayward claimed when named CEO that he would make safety a priority. The ensuing events indicate that he failed. Even so, he is safe himself with his golden parachute. Beyond BP as a dysfunctional company, this points to corporate governance itself being broken in American business.
