An open letter to Obama
Please forgive this open letter but your comments towards BP and its CEO as reported here are coming across as somewhat
prejudicial and personal.
There is no doubt that BP, as a UK PLC, is totally committed to do everything possible to contain the oil leak and meet all its obligations in the
There is a sense here that these attacks are being made because BP is British.
If you compare the damage inflicted on the economies of the western world by polluted securities from the irresponsible, unchecked greed and avarice
of leading USA international banks, there has not been the same personalised response in or from countries beyond the US.
Perhaps a case of double standards?
The immediate issues are very challenging but are best solved working together in a more Statesman like way.
We can all agree that the first and absolute priority is to stem the leak.
Perhaps the second one is to ensure the reputation of the Presidency outside the USA is seen as objective, balanced, able and capable of taking the
heat when under pressure.
We liked the Obama we saw at your election, can we have more of it please.
