Chavez Tries To Embarrass Blair With Heating Oil Offer
According to the London Times:
The President of Venezuela today offered to supply the poor in Britain with cheap heating oil in the winter, in an apparent attempt to embarrass Tony Blair's Government.
Hugo Chavez spoke during a joint press conference with Ken Livingstone, the Mayor of London, during a two-day visit to London in which he has scheduled meetings with left-wing activists but no official inter-governmental talks.
"We have investments here in two refineries in the UK, maybe we could use these refineries to help in some way the most needy people here in London and Great Britain," Senor Chavez said.
