Small people of the Gulf Unite

by admin on June 17th, 2010

Talking with reporters outside the White House yesterday, BP Chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg made a slight gaffe while talking with reporters.
Svanberg said President Obama made clear that he is “frustrated because he cares about the small people.”
“And we care about the small people,” added Svanberg, who is from Sweden.. “I hear comments sometimes that large oil companies are greedy companies or don’t care. But that is not the case indeed. We care about the small people.”
It was quickly put down as a translation error, but we’re not clear if they mean translating from swedish, or from hoity-toity rich European.
