When are we going to stand up to these corporate entities who make money from us?

John Russell August 3, 2022 - 1:18 AM

The Tories are arguing it will create investment. Basically we are funding BP’s green transition instead of shareholders. They will then make profits from wind farms….that we paid for.
If we are paying for them….we should own them.

It's absolutely disgusting and damaging to the national interest. It is imperative that the government steps in to protect it's citizens from shameful price gouging and profitiring by energy companies

Hi August 3, 2022 - 1:22 AM

Disgusting

Joe Williams August 3, 2022 - 1:23 AM

Let's boycott BP. Put them out of business. Spread the word

Robert Powell August 3, 2022 - 1:23 AM

Playing down the cost of VAT and green levy here. Looks like a grand or about 30% to me.

Random Green August 3, 2022 - 1:34 AM

Well hopefully the BP CEO and the board of directors will have some of that money!

Jim Vash August 3, 2022 - 1:36 AM

After losing so much to stock market, One best investment decision I ever made afterwards was investing in financial markets. Which has earned me $34,970 profit every 14days lately. Trust me guys it pays a lot…

And people still blame the government for the prices

Sean Pittaway August 3, 2022 - 1:54 AM

The government are not fit for purpose! If they won't stand for the people they are meant to serve then its time we stood for ourselves. They would rather people starve and or freeze to death then let their mates go without their second or third yaught. It's not working having the rich tell everyone else how to live and I can't wait for the push back 🖕🖕🤞🖕

And the stock is still underperforming

Kronik MathsDebator August 3, 2022 - 2:03 AM

That's an absolute disgrace… The fact that the government allows big companies to practically fleece the population legally is unbelievable. It won't change anytime soon either… That's the sad part. The economy is in a sorry state.

S A August 3, 2022 - 2:06 AM

Well done BP. Looking forward to the dividend.
