    The real question is where did the $500 billion USD go that the Chief Exec from BP said a couple days ago that he gave to our government over the years in royalities etc.? Especially when we are owing so much to our local contractors who sweated for their money. Is this a correct mark of respect for our people from our own leaders. DOES THIS NOT TELL A STORY ABOUT TRINIDAD AND HOW GROSSLY OUR PEOPLE CONTINUE TO BE TREATED BY OUR LEADERS? i hope the mister or idiot who shows off with his big white boat is truly a happy man. But more interestingly, I want him to tell me truthfully that after we pay his idiot friend $2 million for NOTHING….HOW MUCH IS PETROTRIN NOW OWING?
