Google Have More Access to Dave Than Ministers, Says Minister

Scathing insight from BIS minister Viscount Younger on Google’s access to Number 10. As Dave was ushering Eric Schmidt out of the Downing Street back door yesterday, Younger was revealing all about how Google has better access to the PM than even some ministers:

“I’m very aware of [Google’s] power, put it that way. I’ve also very aware that they have got access, for whatever reason, at higher levels than me at No. 10. They are a vociferous action group and a big company to put it bluntly, and are quite powerful.”

A relationship that isn’t going down too well with the Tory troops:

Unheard of for a non-Etonian to have such access.
