British Prime Minister David Cameron and U.S President Barack Obama are due to discuss the Gulf Of Mexico oil spill. It's already being labelled as America's worst environmental disaster. But now it could also damage relations between Washington and London. The UK leader is under increasing pressure to stand up to Obama over his slamming of the British oil company BP.
 
Screw them.
 
The only head clashing that is reportedly (by RUSSIA Today!!!) going on is that generated by media in an attempt to boost sales of an otherwise declining business.
 


It will be interesting to see if BP starts playing hardball back. They can make things very uncomfirtable for Obama. They could spin out BP America which is only 25% of the company. That would leave the U.S. with materially less assets than we want to soak out of them.

Perhaps Phantom might suggest that to BP?
 
BP should have to pay for their part in the disaster,but so should the other company's invloved,Transocean Ltd,Cameron International Corp and Halliburton Energy Services Inc.

Americans taking the high horse,25 years after Bhopal,which makes this crisis look like smalltime !
