Google accused of having too much influence on UK Government

Posted on by Mike Evans

Another "international corporation" is today accused of having a "potentially sinister" influence on the highly susceptible UK government. Writing in British on-line newspaper The Commentator, Harry Cole says:

The secret is out. The government’s close relationship with a controversial global corporation has been exposed for all to see. The Prime Minister, his closest aides, members of the government and backbenchMPs, have all bent over backwards to accommodate the whims of corporate executives. Official diaries are littered with meetings, despite warnings of possible conflicts of interests.

No, not Murdoch and his exhausted looking cronies. Not battered News International, but a company with the potential to be far more sinister and powerful: Google.
