ITS NOT A HOAX. I’M NOT MAKING IT UP. THE MAN IN THE DOG COLLAR IS WHO YOU THINK IT IS: DISGRACED FORMER ROYAL DUTCH SHELL GROUP CHAIRMAN SIR PHILIP WATTS, THE RESERVES FRAUDSTER ESCORTED FROM THE SHELL CENTRE BY SECURITY GUARDS. I WELL REMEMBER THE TRANSFORMATION PROCESS, BUT THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE!
FROM A FORMER EP HAND WHO WORKED CLOSELY WITH WATTS
Perhaps you see fit to publish this unbelievable story. I nearly had a fit when I read it and was convinced it was a hoax. But apparently it is all true, proving that real life is more strange than the most far fetched fiction that Hollywood (or nowadays the BBC) can dream up.
Look at these links:
(The churchwardens are delighted to announce that the Rev. Sir Philip Watts has been appointed to be Priest in Charge at Waltham St. Lawrence.) For some reason forgot to mention in his CV the name of the energy company of which he was Chairman.
(Many congratulations to Phil as he has been offered the post of Priest in Charge at Waltham St Lawrence for the next 3 years. He will be taking up this post in February 2013. )
It appears that Sir Philip Watts (you know, the same Phil that cheated on the reserves, bullied his whole life everyone in Shell and nearly brought Shell down with his mega ego) has found salvation.
Perhaps he has treated this whole path as a business opportunity. It cannot have escaped him that after he turned up in his silly astronaut suit, many (incl myself) predicted and hoped he would go to hell. So, his thinking may be ‘Let’s give this a go and see if I can fake to repent enough to ultimately still go to heaven’.
NO CHANCE!!!!! To make sure I will give St Peter a call to be extra careful in due time.
This evil man stole the job of CEO of Shell, he nearly destroyed the company with his brash behaviour and he must be on par with the creeps that ran ENRON and a bit later the big banks. He is a complete self-serving hypocrite. And now that he is getting older going the same route as the brilliant McNamara who with his policies and ideas escalated the Vietnam war and killed millions. Towards the end of his life he started to say sorry. Too little, too late!!!
Let me copy a paragraph from Wikipedia (the red is by me…):
In 1993, Washington journalist Deborah Shapley published a 615-page biography of Robert McNamara entitled Promise and Power: the Life and Times of Robert McNamara. The last pages of her book made clear that while Ms. Shapley deeply admired certain aspects of McNamara the man, and the public servant, she had seen first-hand his need to manipulate the truth, as well as to tell it. Shapley concluded her book with these words: “For better and worse McNamara shaped much in today’s world — and imprisoned himself. A little-known nineteenth century writer, F.W. Boreham, offers a summation: `We make our decisions. And then our decisions turn around and make us.’”
McNamara’s memoir, In Retrospect, published in 1995, presented an account and analysis of the Vietnam War from his point of view. According to his lengthy New York Times obituary, “[h]e concluded well before leaving the Pentagon that the war was futile, but he did not share that insight with the public until late in life. In 1995, he took a stand against his own conduct of the war, confessing in a memoir that it was ‘wrong, terribly wrong.’” In return, he faced a “firestorm of scorn” at that time.
So you see, sometimes you think you have seen it all and then this happens!
Shell bought the silence of Watts with a reported $18.5 million severance/pension package.
“And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.”
