"Tony Blair was yesterday being touted as the man to rescue stricken BP.

"City experts reckon appointing the ex Prime Minister as chairman is the first step to saving the company after the Gulf of Mexico oil spill disaster.

"They highlighted his huge popularity in America and his close links to BP as Premier.

"City expert Matthew Lynn said: "Anyone who watched chief executive Tony Hayward struggle to find a voice while being skewered by Congress last week would have realised the company needs to step up its debating skills by about 1,000%."

Yes, BP's problem is all about the lack of debating skills. Mr. Blair has excellent skills, which he used them well to goad his nation into the war with Iraq.
