The grilling of Tony Hayward by a Congressional Committee is only the first humiliation that the BP boss will suffer following the announcement that he is to have his arse kicked by President Obama live on prime time TV. BP’s top management team were called to White House earlier this week to discuss the crisis situation which had left the President’s party in danger of losing ground in the forthcoming mid term elections.
Although BP swiftly agreed to suspend dividend payments and to contribute $20 billion to compensate victims of the pollution from their out of control deepwater oil well, the question of public retribution took several more gruelling hours painstaking negotiation before Obama’s team emerged triumphantly announcing that Tony Hayward would be kicked in the rear by the most powerful man in the world.
