Many here are now thinking that the scurrilous American government attack on BP was a deliberate act to devalue BP and make it a takeover target.
ExxonMobil and Chevron have both been cleared by the White House to bid for BP, the lily livered British government has said it will not intervene if such a bid materialised.

Seeing as BP has been laid open to bids under questionable circumstances I guess it would be difficult to slam the door in the face of bidding from PetroChina with Chinese government backing.

Obama would then have to refer to it as 'Blitish Petloleum'.

Serves him right the slimy ***!!
