“I’m sure they were genuinely ill, but whether it was anything to do with dispersants and oil, whether it was food poisoning, or some other reason for them being ill, you know, there’s a — food poisoning’s clearly a big issue when you’ve got a concentration of this number of people in ten pre-cabs, ten pre-accommodations, it’s something we have to be very, very mindful of. It’s one of the big issues of keeping the army operating, I mean armies march on their stomachs.”

~ Tony Hayward, BP Chief Executive Officer

You can’t make this shit up.

I mean, it’s really and truly one of those arrogant beyond belief, did-he-really-just-fucking-say-that moments that used to precipitate bloody revolutions and heads in buckets.  He may as well have said there’s no shell fish, let them eat my shit.

And this from the guy who also recently pointed out that the Gulf of Mexico is indeed a very large body of water.

“The Gulf of Mexico is a very big ocean. The amount of volume of oil and dispersant we are putting into it is tiny in relation to the total water volume…”

No shit, really mother fucker?  Perhaps you’d like to prove your point by going for a little swim?  We’ll gladly help you into the water.
