    BP to pay the biggest fine in US history for the Oil spill

    BP (British Petroleum) will have to pay the fine on top of the $20 billion settlement for the oil spill. They could still be facing civil lawsuits.

    The biggest surprise to me was that they made $43 billion profit this year. Clearly the oil spill did not slow them down.

    Thanks goodness they have been held to account and are paying. The Exxon Valdez case went on for years and the people affected got a pittance.
    When you are up to your arse in alligators it is difficult to remember you were only meant to be draining the swamp.
