Report: Google's Privacy Manager Worked For UK Regulator During Street View Investigation [guardian.co.uk]
Google's UK privacy manager was a senior official at the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) during its much-criticised investigation into Street View, it has emerged.


Stephen McCartney joined Google as its London-based privacy policy manager in November last year 18 months after he was in charge of data protection promotion at the watchdog at the same time that it cleared the company over its secret data collection by Street View cars. The ICO reopened its investigation in June following fresh evidence from a US regulator.
