The continuing use of the Nazi story at the top of the page and now the tabloid add-on about “hinting” Shell is involved with Taliban and road side bombs is a story too far Mr.D. Way over the top and downgrades this website very badly indeed. Yes it’s your website but trying to taint Shell for all the worlds problems by linking them to governments they operate in is ridiculous.

There I was wrongly thinking that Shell’s support for fanatical regimes responsible for mass murder downgraded Shell e.g. providing income and legitimacy to the Iranian regime supplying roadside bombs which are killing and maiming UK and US soldiers. If you run a Google search today on “Royal Dutch Shell” you will see that the “Shell saved Hitler” article appears in the first page at number 6 out of 1.370 million returns. This reminder of Shell’s continuing lack of ethics and morals is staying at the top of the page. This is the company, which from June 2009, was secretly carrying out a global spying operation against its own employees while preaching transparency and honesty. A company which has a Chief Ethics Officer with a track record of supporting corrupt practices by Shell executives. You might not like what we have to say, but it is all true. If not, Shell would have launched defamation proceedings against us long ago.
If Shell management does ever work up the courage to face us in Court, we will happily produce volumes of documentary evidence to support what we say.

I agree with Mussaint, we have seen the Nazi party story and the far fetched link between Shell and roadside bombs undermines the credibility of the site.

Your somewhat illogical thinking would make me think you would like to see Shell withdraw from all operations where there is a corrupt government in force. This would also include the likes of the UK, USA, Nigeria etc. etc. Not an option unless of course you want to shut down Shell completely then what would you do with you time? Sorry Mr. D. I cannot agree with your logic on this, albeit that some governments should be shut down (e.g. Nigeria and the Labour party in the UK).

I would like Shell to stop being two-faced by pretending that it abides by its proclaimed business principles, while being prepared to do business with evil regimes and engaging in all manner of unscrupulous predatory behavior, including securities fraud, fictitious trades, industrial espionage, leadership of price fixing cartels, etc. See Wikipedia “Controversies surrounding Royal Dutch Shell“
