Oils spill's 'incalculable damage' to BP's reputation

Holly Pattenden of Business Monitor International commented on the "incalculable damage" to BP's reputation from the Gulf Of Mexico oil spill.

BP has had "a very bad reputation for safety in the past," she explained.

She outlined that the effect of the spill would be "very nasty" for BP's short term finances, but that it "will recover" in the long term.
