Google boss fights back

Wednesday 28 November 2012 6:00

Google UK boss Matt Brittin has spoken out against tax payment accusations.

He told Channel 4 News that it was down to politicians to legislate if they wanted to force change as he fought back against suggestions that multinationals are "immoral".

The Google boss said that while he did not mind the "belligerent" grilling he had received from MPs on the Public Accounts Committee two weeks ago, the public debate was creating the view that all "businesses are trying to do negative things and get away with them."

"I find it frustrating when we're criticised because I'm not immoral and neither is Google. If Google were immoral, I would not be working hereā€¦.I'm proud of the way we operate."
