Did the Financial Times get cold feet about upsetting this British blue-chip company? There are many out there who are suggesting something stinks about this - and it is not just the air that the people of the Niger Delta are forced to breathe.

I'm so sick of these oil companies' actions. I'm sure they have innumerable cronies, as well, to help shield them from the consequences of their actions.

Whomsoever pays the piper calls the tune.
We, as public citizens, can make a real difference with selective boycotts of the companies found to be the worse offenders, just for a start;
that is if we really mean what we say.

I completely agree with Edward M. Businesses need to be responsible but so do we. If we only support "good" businesses and make sure they are following their CSR policies, then we can transform the private market.
