Sabre Rattling Over BP

Well for the first time since I have heard of him I disagree with President Obama. I can see exactly where he is coming from, I can sympathise, I am aware that BP's actions that have led to this have been shoddy at best and if I were an American, especially an American who lives in the Gulf of Mexico, I would be fuming.
But we need to work together on this, a lot of livelihoods, including some on both sides of the Atlantic are dependent on BP and I would respectfully point out to President Obama that, given his experience as a community organiser in Chicago in the 1980s, he should be keenly aware of that. Yes BP has behaved badly, but now is not the time to start shouting the odds, now is the time to work together.
