BP triggered a further backlash last night as it tried to shift the blame for the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster.
In a report released yesterday into the cause of the spill, the beleaguered British oil giant claims two other multinational companies were largely at fault.
The 193-page internal investigation plays down BP’s culpability for America’s worst ever oil leak, which took 87 days to plug and strained relations between the U.S. and Britain.
But it provoked an angry response last night from U.S. politicians, environmentalists and the firms it singled out for blame.
