A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

Lord Browne's Body

Sing it with me:

Lord Browne's company has apparently had enough
He liked his mighty bonuses, but now he's £µ©λing off ...
'Cos sucking others' dicks is quite improper for a toff,
But killing's always on ...

Without his $30 mil in bonuses, no less.

And why?

Guilt over the 15 dead men at the Texas City explosion and fire, caused by his cheapness and willingness to cut corners on safety?


Humiliation at the enormous bonus he got while BP crude spilled sweetly across Alaska?


Lying to a judge about his sex life?


There's so much wrong with this it's impossible for me to offer further comment. So I'll let the Houston Chronicle's Loren Steffy handle the job.

Unlike Browne, he's clearly up for it ... the work, I mean.

There IS one thing that might be said here: George W. Bush is personally responsible for at least 500,000 deaths, personally organized the sale of America to Halliburton and co, and for some unknown reason is still allowed to decide what's going to happen next. I've been wondering: when the hell are we going to hear the word "impeach" from Congress?

Well, in a country where lying about having sex (gay or Clinton) is still a bigger crime than murder, I suppose it could take a while.

Wonder if Bush has any interns?

Bonjour M Metro

Quelle tragedie - his Career shattered - all the good things he has done are quite forgot

... and all for one momentary lapse of judgment (lying to a Judge) where no-one seems to have been hurt or damaged

Yr ob servt etc

Actually, I think the point is that all the bad things for which he was responsible have been forgot.

Lying to a judge, bad thing okay. But why resign over that when he had so many other excellent reasons?

Canadian drilling operations are notoriously risky.

Don't get me started on the tar sands.

Oh--and while we're scraping this $#!7 out of the ground at record rates (Canada supplies between 70% and over 100% of its own oil needs depending on who you ask), soiling the water, earth, and air and killing the odd imported Chinese slave--sorry--"non-union labourer," we are nontheless paying over $1.20/l this summer.

I'm fine with doubling the price, as long as I know exactly where it's going and who's getting what. But I deeply resent getting screwed so that Lord Browne has a yacht to indulge his penchant for sausage-slurping on.

The fuel stations claim it's "cost increases". Yet all while the petrocorps track record profits.

Odd co-incidence that, eh? Increased production cost means they make MORE money ... Wish my job worked that way.

But Harper isn't investigating. After all, there have been at least six prior investigations, none of which found anything.

And none of which addressed the lack of transparency in crude oil purchasing practices.
