image for Google Street View stands their ground!

After thousands of complaints to Watchdog, Google has said no to the idea of removing Street View, there new feature that allows you to walk the streets cities around the world from the comfort of your own home.

The idea was thought up by Google creator Larry Page, when is thick lensed glasses couldn't see into his neighbour's bathroom window.

Page, a young internet entrepreneur, is said to have discussed the idea of 'Peep View', formally known as Street View at Geeks United, a private members club in his mother's basement. One member of the club who wishes to remain nameless said: 'Larry has always been a bit of a perv so Peep View makes perfect sense. We told him to change it to Street View so that others can enjoy it without feeling too guilty'.

Street View is available on all PC's worldwide and allows the user to browse the streets, at street level, of 27 cities in the UK and 100's in the USA.

Gordon Brown wishes for the feature to be axed after he is clearly seen walking out of an incriminated shop in London's Soho. Other complaints have been from HRH Prince Harry as he was seen smoking an 'extra long cigarette' in Camden Town, Jamie Oliver eating McDonalds and Bob Geldof kicking a tramp.

A spokesperson from Google has said 'we haven't done anything wrong, we are only taking piccies of things we see, its there problem for doing things they shouldn't' He went on 'We are only trying to make it easier for people to look at people with out them knowing, it's harmless really'

As it stands, there is no law to suggest that Google are in the wrong, until then we just need to be more careful.
