Having just returned from a trip to the U.S., I have seen first hand how successful President Obama has been in persuading his country that Britain - and Britain alone - is to blame for the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
In an act of pure spite and calculated political expediency, he has vilified BP to boost his own waning popularity.
We all know how much Hollywood loves a British villain, but there's something deeply offensive about the way Obama has turned BP's chief executive, Tony Hayward, into a hate figure.
