Obama’s determine to rebrand BP as British Petroleum, when it’s American Oil Co (Amoco) -originated employees, (in tandem with America’s very own Halliburton and aided by the American rig company whose name I can’t recall) screwed up in the Gulf of Mexico, continues to pay dividends.
At a seminar yesterday, in Houston, a presenter referred to BP as British Petroleum several times.
Ludicrously ennobled Lord Browne, Tony Blair’s fave NuLabour “industrialist” in his crony capitalist world, wasted all that dosh on PR. As I recall, Browne’s PA was Anji Hunter, who worked for Tony (maybe on secondment?) and then shacked up with corpulent Sky TV news reporter Adam Boulton.
