He Wants His Life Back!

Jun 14, 2010

How many fishing workers, tourism workers, and oil industry workers will never economically recover because of this horrendous spill–this gushing disaster?

Yet Tony Hayward, the callous, spoiled brat CEO of BP had the nerve to whine: “I want my life back.”

The brother of one of the men killed in the initial oil rig explosion testified before Congress: "Well, Mr. Hayward, I want my brother’s life back."

Eleven men lost their lives. Millions will lose their livelihood.

In 2007 when Hayward became CEO it was after a series of major accidents. He promised to improve safety.

There was no safety plan. He is responsible. The life he deserves to get back–should be in a prison cell.
