Tony Hayward is too busy to show up at a Senate hearing

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee is holding a hearing about BP's role in securing the release of convicted Lockerbie bomber, Abdelbaset al-Megrahi. For those who may have missed the story, BP lobbied to have him released to secure a pending deal they had with Libya.

BP's role in his release has only recently been revealed much to the embarrassment of the British Government and the Scottish Justice Secretary, Kenny MacAskill. Both admitted the release was a mistake but not Tony. It should be obvious to everyone that by now that embarrassment is not in his repertoire of emotions.

Hayward is now the ex-CEO of BP but is still far to busy to show up for the hearing on Thursday as the Committee has requested. Ever the whining wanker that he is, he complained to reporters that he had been unfairly “demonized and vilified” in the US where Barack Obama and other politicians have been severely critical of BP’s actions and taken exception to some of his (Hayward’s) public comments.

The worthless wanker should be happy, he's finally getting 'his life back' while the residents of the Gulf are still waiting for their lives back.

Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) was infuriated by Hayward’s reply, stating, “It is apparently more important to BP and Mr Hayward to focus on his multimillion dollar golden parachute than to help answer serious questions about whether the company advocated trading blood for oil.”

BP is ready to start deepwater drilling off the coast of Libya next month, a deal believed to be worth about $20 billion to them. I wonder if they'll be more careful this time.
