Forget the UK thing. This seems to illustrate how scared G are that cookies might be not be allowed in some areas of the world. In the US they apparently went so far as so write software to circumvent safari stopping cookies being written.
Think about it, how different Gs world would be if half the people in the world could, at the press of a button, stop cookies being written. It would seriously dent their business model.
The EU have already had a shot at this but appear to have backed down because the law was so stupidly framed. Maybe in this case the UK will stick to its guns and rather than close G down just stop it circumventing forcing the writing of cookies whenever it feels like it.
