Looks like BP’s pipelines aren’t their only parts putting bile out into the universe: their press lines aren’t exactly secure, either, given that a memo leaked today catches BP red-handedly grossly comparing their business to The Three Little Pigs.
It’s basically what a life insurance policy does, except it’s a corporation equating a profit margin in the event they fail to keep you from getting killed, which is their responsibility when you’re working for them. And what does BP say of this?
A BP spokesman tells The Daily Beast that the company has “fundamentally changed the culture of BP” since the previous disaster, an explosion at a Texas refinery five years ago. But given that a $500,000 valve might have prevented the massive spill that is now threatening to devastate the Gulf of Mexico, one has to wonder.
