The ‘small people’ remark

Mrs. TwShiloh and I had a bit of a chuckle over Svanberg’s remark that BP cares about the ‘small people’.  I’m no fan of BP (who is?) but in all fairness, this is a temptest in a tea pot.  If you watch and listen to the clip you’ll hear that he’s got a pretty thick (for a Swede) accent.  Mrs. TwShiloh had the news on in the background and as soon as Svanberg started talking her Swedar started pinging and she thought “That’s a Swede!  And he’s got a thick accent!”  And then…disaster.

So, I this really seems like a translation issue.

But who knows, maybe he just was trying to apologize to the real ‘small people‘.
