think BP should pay its Dividend and that the American Government has
this one wrong.
BP are hugely, hugely awash with cash and have said they'll pay all
costs, and that's good.
Shareholders didn't spill the oil so why should they be penalised ?
Also, loads of pension funds the world over rely on that Dividend to
finance pensions for folks you and I know, so that wouldn't be fair?
If BP are good to their word and pay, why should the rightly
expectant nominees of a Dividend payment be denied their $2600
Imagine how repeatedly that is spent again and again in the economy
and all those knock ons for kick starting an economy and driving sales.
Is this the US Government being seen to look chastising? Kinda wrong
Soap box away now.
Come on Capitalism!
