Goodbye, Google. Don’t let the door bash you in the arse on the way out. China does just fine without you, so the rest of the world will, too.

Every politician is corrupt! So Google will just buy them and the regulations will be altered and fabricated according to Google’s will. I’d be very surprised if the australian Gov. stays firm!

I hope to high heaven that Australia wins this one Alex, it’s about time Google had a “smack” in the face, alongside all the rest of the greedy American corporate tech giants. They leave no room for anyone else to thrive using their brains and skills, they go round mopping up any competition like pawns on a chess board. If they won’t mend their ways voluntarily then they must be forced to, so I’m on the side of Scott Morrison.
