An entire day just for Canadians? That seems a bit pretentious for you guys. You are usually far more modest.

Ejnoy!

Well, since BP (previously known as 'British' Petroleum) is a Multi-National which employs 3 times as many Americans as Brits (none of whom were present on the rig) and the cementing work was in fact done by HALLIBURTON (remember them?) people might want to dig a bit deeper before apportioning blame. Who is consuming it all? No supply without demand.

Great call by Bama giving it a 'safety award' few months previously. Strangely also forgot to mention BP were one of his biggest election campaign contributors. Gotta blame someone though, eh? *Buck flies through air.....Deflection shot!* http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif But you are right, lets not go there. Luv U 2 Bama! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

(Yes, BP are indeed scum and I am very sad for the hard working people this affected, but they have not been a solely 'British' company for a long time, only nominally.)

As someone said to me recently:

"This oil spill has resulted in multiple human deaths, thousands of dead animals, the destruction of entire ecosystems, the demise of tourism industries for entire states, and the expenditure of billions of taxpayer money, and somehow the British have managed to make this about themselves just because Obama dared to say British Petroleum once instead of BP."

Anyway we've already had a topic about this where various Rule Britannia types posted their unbelievable Daily Mail propaganda so I'm just going to leave it at that since it's already been dealt with.

I'm not defending BP one bit, not sure if you read the last sentence mate, what has happened is terrible and it is sad. I am as far removed from a 'Rule Britannia' type as can be, and the 'Daily Wail' is suitable only for emergency toilet paper. More of a 'Guardianista' type but they all have an agenda of course. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Point is there are a LOT of people to blame, end of story.

What Obama did was quite deliberate and cynical, sorry if you can't see that but nevermind (I was a big Obama supporter and very glad he got elected).

Lets forget about 'Piper Alpha' (167 dead, US built rig which we strangely did not blame an entire country for) and the Bhophal chem disaster too (4000+ Indian people killed but since they are not US citizens they don't count right? Barely made 2 column inches).

People being killed for oil is a bit rich coming from certain parties, but it is not 'my' or 'our' oil which you mentioned. Its Obama's Govt acting like the sun shines out of their collective ar*es that is annoying.

Just saying, is all.....nothing personal mate and Peace. Thats all. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

How did you guys manage to turn a Canada Day thread into a BP/Obama one?

I just think it's ridiculous to accuse Obama of hating the UK just because he said British Petroleum instead of BP. Nowhere did he demonize the UK or Britons. The British media threw a fit about this because a lot of important Britons make a lot of money off of their BP stock and they wanted to find something to divert attention from BP being a horrible company.

Again the forum has gone through this before so I'll let it lie, nothing personal taken or meant towards you either, have a good day yourself. July 4th is coming up so us Yanks get a three day weekend in honor of a certain revolution... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
