BP: talk to Feinberg, Feinberg: they did, and the answer is no…
A delegation travelled to London this week to accuse BP of ignoring the claims of minorities and the damages they sustained from the oil spill.
“The 5-member delegation represents Operation People for Peace, a coalition that advocates for those who were harmed by the spill but were left out of the compensation process, according to the group’s founder, Art Rocker. Rocker, a Pensacola minister and a board member of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, was joined by Dick Gregory, a comedian and activist; E. Faye Williams, chair of the National Congress of Black Women Inc.; and Prichard Police Chief Jimmie Gardner. ”
So, whadda ya think happened?
British Petroleum CEO Bob Dudley saw a grave injustice being committed and he swooped down to the lobby on a special wire and pulley mechanism, met personally with each and every member of the delegation and made guarantees that every single person they represented would be made right, made whole, made into not only one, but two completely brand new people, and it only makes sense because in this day and age, if there is one thing we know about our brethren in the oil companies, it is they not only exist for profit as any company should, but they exist for the betterment of humankind by any means necessary.
Oh, I mean they were turned away twice by BP underlings and told to go talk to Feinberg.
And what did Feinberg have to say about this?
He said nobody would fall through the cracks, not on his watch. He was there to make sure that everybody got precisely what they deserved, not a penny less, not a penny more and he proceeded to pull out his gilded checkbook and he started writing checks just as fast as he could.
Oh, I mean he said he’d already conferred with the group, but the claimants lacked the necessary documentation for compensation. “They are very credible. These are not false claims or bogus claims,” he said. “I’m rather sympathetic to their concern. But the issue is the same with every claimant . . . Can there be some minimum degree of documentation that will permit the (claims facility) to honor the claim?”
No worries though, I understand Barack Obama has personally committed himself to assist in negotiations, ensuring a fair and reasonable settlement between parties.
