Mayday call in the Gulf of Mexico

In today’s press review, we focus on the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico. More than a month after the disaster, BP still hasn’t found a solution.

The oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico has made the front page of several international newspapers, including The Guardian, The International Herald Tribune, and La Tribune.
The Wall Street Journal focuses on a 23 year old rig worker who put out a mayday call on the 20th April. The newspaper managed to read BP’s safety guidelines and it seems the company was not prepared to handle the situation.
 
In Great Britain, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury David Laws resigned only 17 days after his appointment. The Independent says there are “fears that his loss will undermine the confidence in the new coalition”.The Conserviatives and the Lib Dems said Laws was capable of handling the economy, and cut billions of pounds from public spending. But now, Laws is accused of using £40,000 of tax payers’ money, to rent a property owned by his partner.
The Daily Telegraph talks about David Laws’ successor, Danny Alexander.The newspaper reveals that the “New Treasury Chief avoided paying the Capital Gains Tax  on his second home”.
 
And finally, Colombia is currently choosing a new President.  Juan Manuel Santos beat Antanas Mockus with a clear win in the first round. The Christian Science Monitor explains why.
