It’s a bit like protesting a war – you don’t like what is going on, but that doesn’t mean you hate or blame the individual soldiers who are in the middle of it.

Hi Kate,

Sorry to hear the bad news for your family - bad timing on my part. I hadn't heard about BP workers at the time I sent the email.

All the best,

Please be nice to fossil fuel company employees today. My husband just lost his job at BP as Asia can produce a lot more, a lot lot more cheaply and put it on a boat bound for brisbane and still make a profit.   Around 40 engineers alone are being made redundant from his site and the only industry that he has any very faint hope of getting a job with is - you guessed it - mining, oil and gas and maybe coal seam gas. So they may be bastards but unfortunately those bastards pay my mortgage and groceries. :-(

No real reason for posting this...other than it's a cracking good song and has a nice mix of live footage from the Exxon protest guerrilla show, and given that fossil fuel companies are still running as rampant (if not more) compared to a couple of decades ago while the world cooks, such a protest is as apt as ever.
