Hi Mr wintoat, I am sorry that so many BP shills on this board seem to ignore you.That is a shame.Your comments are so relevant and meaningful and obvioulsy well thought out.You should report everyone of them.For me, I have no money incentive becuase I don't own any shares.In anything.All my posts are on this BPboard because I loathe BP.I can't tell you why but maybe because they fired me.I thought i did a good job keeping pencils sharp in the board room.Then someone found out i was steeling them.So what?I wasn't using them to write with.Hey.I have needs to you know.Are you availalble?I hope you are over 16.It is hard to tell by your posts.I will be thinkin of you.Vikki.
A better solution would be to reduce management by 1 billion so BP workers will be less distracted by management. I am only speaking from 17 years of BP experience so you may ignore me. How many years did you work for BP?
The problem is not the numbers in management .The problem is a corporate attitude that we can get away with anything,take risks and pay money out to get out of the consequences.Bp shareholders should demand wholesale corporate restructuring.This disaster cost BP at least a billion dollars.And the shareholders have taken a real beating.When Mix thought BP was wrong on oil flowing out he should have been able to go straight to the top with it.BP should have admitted all of the problems to the government in real time.What they did do was tarnish the reputation of a company that has been in business for a long time.Drilling so deep is fraught with danger.Nothing could have predicted that accident.But the aftereffects linger on.
