I was on BBC radio on Thursday, commenting on the record profits announced by Shell. I said it was very good news because it meant the thousands of jobs which Shell sustains in Britain are safe. It's also good to see a world class British company doing so well. I pointed out that Shell is devoting huge resources to the development of cleaner technologies and alternative fuels, which it can afford to do thanks to its healthy profits. I said we should all be celebrating the good news.
