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.
