OPL 245: I think Shell may be in a spot of bother

This was actually on the 8:00am news on ! I think Joe Shell might be in a spot of bother.

I cannot comment on the latest allegations about Shell that are hitting the headlines – I would just say that they should be looked at in the context of the Company’s “Business Principles” :

The Principles were introduced when I was an employee. I supported them but my colleagues will recall that I argued strongly that if they were not to be just PR Flimflam there had to be a conscious and internally regulated process to see that they were applied. When I looked at Corrib some years ago I concluded that if there was such a process it wasn’t working in this case. The latest news raises further questions.

Flabergasted: I am utterly disgusted and ashamed of the hypocritical company I work for. The shell business principles are officially dead. RIP
