Young David produced a copy of the Congress report that I was able to peruse. One particular section he drew to my attention concerned the origins of the failed 'blow-out preventer'. Whose company do you think might have designed and provided the substandard equipment? Tracing the serial number of the item, one can ascertain that its origins lie with Gornt Deep-Sea Hydronautics of Manila.
And where might Quillan be at present? Not in Hong Kong, but 'touring the southern states', supposedly on holiday, but I think there might be an ulterior motive. However, Gornt has done a much better job than BP CEO Tony Hayward in keeping out of the limelight.
Still, we might yet see QG on the beaches, shovel in hand, trying to sway the media yet.
Hope you're enjoying your travels Quillan!

I raised a toast with Tsang to the introduction of some decent competition in Europe, and as the sun beat down onto the clear blue waters (no plastic flotsam here, note), I really did not miss the throngs of mainland tourists that were not on the beach.
