Google and the art of pretending to be socialist

Google has a weird PR campaign going on in Europe....

Paul Kedrosky caused me to do a double-take on a Financial Times article on Google's hiring plans in Europe. Apparently, in a struggle to make itself look like Father Christmas, Google's head of engineering in Europe had this to say:

Um...yes. That would be correct. In fact, that would be Google's absolute shareholder responsibility. Am I missing something?
