BP chairman: 'We care about the small people'

WASHINGTON (AFP) - BP chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg promised to "look after the people affected" after talks with President Barack Obama.

BP will not pay shareholder dividends    • Analysts: BP can cope with 20 billion oil fund   • BP sells $10 billion in assets   • Svanberg in the limelight   • Obama will make BP pay for its 'recklessness'   • Svanberg arrives at White House for Obama talks

BP Swedish chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg said Wednesday the British energy giant cared about the fate of the "small people" hit by the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, vowing to look after all affected.

Emerging from White House talks with President Barack Obama, Svanberg said the British energy giant had "always met our obligations and responsibilities."

"We have made clear from the first moment of this tragedy that we will live up to all our legitimate responsibilities," Svanberg said, adding all claims for compensation would be met "swiftly and fairly."

"We will look after the people affected, and we will repair the damage to this region, the environmental damage to this region and to the economy," he added.

Obama said he had urged the BP bosses to remember when they were meeting in the boardroom to "keep in mind those individuals, that they are desperate, may lose business that have been in their families for two or three generations."

Svanberg agreed, saying: "We care about the small people."

He was too busy to come straight out to see you - this is why

He cared more about his BIG yacht and sailing around clear pristine waters than the oily waters of the Gulf and the small people's problems. His first concern was meeting up secretly with his married mistress of years, Louise Julian, for yet another holiday - the press report. Hope you didn't use the BP Jet as well! - They're onto you.

Small people? He clearly doesn't know us - and hasn't ever seen us!!
This just shows how out of touch BP is from what they're doing to the real, live living people their recklessness affects.
