Well, you take the pay, you do the time….and accept the consequences. Honestly!!
What a remarkably stupid comment. When the going’s good, he’s happy to take the money etc, but when he, as head chief, is ultimately responsible for the bad things that happen, he passes the buck.
Nothing like a bit of humble pie hey?
Us congress has said that BP ignored the dangers when drilling in the Gulf.
When you and your company earn so much money, you do have a HUGE resposibility to make sure what you do is safe and secure.
How much does he earn ? He gets an annual salary of £998000 and in 2008 his bonus was £1496000. I think that pays for a fair bit of trouble when you are spilling millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf, and 11 people that worked for you died.
Funny enough, BP is likely to survive all this. What I don’t like is the arrogance of the man, ( not the company). TAKE THE RAP – you silly man, after all you TAKE THE PAY!
That being said, he can go home after all this lack of sleep, and grilling, and get his wife to make him a nice Salmon Teriyaki ( he’ll have to eat a fresh water fish cos after this debacle the sea fish are a little ill..) and he can close his house door, and relax.
The people in the Gulf, however, have to clean up, try find new jobs, and work like mad to save the wildlife that have been harmed and endangered as a result.
I hope he feel shame!
