Day by day, we are learning just how appalling and unstoppable the consequences can be when an oil pipe that is only 21 inches wide snaps open at the bottom of the sea. When the leak was first discovered at the Deepwater Horizon rig in the Gulf of Mexico on 22 April, most observers balanced worries about an incipient environmental disaster against a comforting assumption that within a few days BP would have patched it up.

BP needs to provide convincing answers to both questions if it is not to find itself on the end of lawsuits that could wreak havoc with both its reputation and its finances.
