Senators from the Gulf Coast states and also the Senator for Detroit (one of the USA's most admired oil users) have demanded an inquiry into the claims that BP lobbied for the release of Conrad Black.
Senator Bill McCunliffe was infuriated that Conrad Black had been set free. He said that he didn't give a dead horses ass if there was any truth in the fact that Conrad Black was the only man in the World who had enough shredded paper to soak up the oil washing around the Gulf of Mexico.
If we need shredded paper then lets get if from our own home grown bunch of cow kicking, manure eating mofo's.. lets get it from Enron!
BP declined any statement at this time apart from saying "Like most of the fish in the Gulf of Mexico we are completely in the dark about these claims"..
