    This happens more than I care to think about. Now who is responsible for that if it turns out to be truth?

    I think that both oil companies are responsible. Of course the government is responsible too.

    Failure to carry out inspections in a timely manner makes the government responsible. Total ineptitude makes the two companies responsible. I wonder what the government in the UK is going to do to PB. Oh, that's right, nothing.

    You'd think a country like the UK would be concerned with the enviroment and how one of its companies is trashing the world.

    hopefully the 50M or whatever it was liability cap includes an override for gross negligence.

    certain oil rig supervisors are probably preparing their overseas escapes right now.
