BP Chair Speaks Out

After several weeks the Swedish chair of oil company BP has spoken out on the company's oil spill of the US coast. But Carl-Henrik Svanberg has chosen to talk, not to a news agency or news paper, but to rather record an interview and upload it to YouTube.

Swedish Radio news, among other media, has been trying to get hold of Svanberg for some time, and criticises the BP chairman's avoidance of any tough questions, such as how much oil has actually leaked, when the well will be finally blocked up, and how much BP will be paying to clear up the damage.
