On air: Should we feel sorry for Tony Hayward?
He's one of the most infamous men in the world. BP chief executive Tony Hayward has been vilified for being the man at the helm of the worst environmental disaster in US history.
You can follow Tony Hayward's testimony to a US Congress committee on the BBC News website from 1500 BST (1000 EST).
Is it fair that Tony Hayward is pilloried by a hostile press? BP has now agreed to a $20 billion compensation fund for victims of the oil spill and during Tuesday's Congressional hearings top executives from four major oil companies admitted they are also ill equipped to deal with one.
And after President Obama's address, is there a case to say that the politicians should have ensured stricter regulation for deep sea drilling in the first place?
This blogger suggestsTony Hayward has been made a scapegoat for the failures of politicians, lack of regulation and highlighting the mismanagement of the big oil companies.
But this professor from Harvard Business School thinks BP needs a new leader who engenders confidence:
Tony Hayward's actions have not been responsive, and when that happens, a manager is dispensable.
