Il capo di Megabucks BP ha stroncato per commenti sordi mentre i profitti triplicano al massimo di 14 anni

THE multi-millionaire boss of BP sparked further outrage yesterday as the oil giant’s profits trebled to a 14-year high but he shrugged it off as a “trilemma”.

Bernard Looney’s jargon was meant to refer to the three challenges facing the industry — energy security, fuel affordability and the transition to renewables.

But his tone-deaf comments come as Brits face huge bills.

Looney admitted that “living costs are spiralling upwards” with “the price of energy a big contributor”.

The Irishman stopped short of saying BP would help households, tuttavia.

The firm reported that its preferred measure of profit had jumped to £6.9billion between April and June — more than three times higher than last year’s £2.29billion and the second highest quarterly profit in its history.
