The BBC’s coverage of the Gulf oil spill continually shadowed the line taken by Obama, namely that this was the worst ecological disaster ever to hit the region and that the shorelines would take generations to recover. So, when the hated BP managed to successfully cap the Oil spill, and then it emerged that the imagined environmental holocaust had, erm, mostly vanished, what to do for the intrepid BBC? Answer – raise Piper Alpha. Even though it happened 22 years ago, the BBC actually led the post 7am news section with the allegation that the environmental damage it caused back then is still threatening the environment today and nothing is being done about. Or so Mike Thomson speculates. As far as I can see, this story is little more than his imaginations and certainly does not deserve such prominent placement on the BBC daily news schedule. Then again the demanding narrative showing how evil Big Oil is requires sustenance now that BP is no longer the biggest menace in the world….so back to the 80’s.
