$20 billion is a lot but probably will not be enough.

If BP didn't agree to the amount and handing it over to an independent body, Obama threatened to introduce laws to force it to.

That smacks of extortion!

Seeing as BP has no control over its money I hope they insisted on a caveat that if $1 is procured illegally the whole deal is null and void.

People just love showing largesse with other peoples money.

One things for sure, the way Britain has come under attack over this oil spew will make a lot of people review their opinions of America and Britain from both sides.
