- The case for frustration - with some added twitter exchanges below

- — iain campbell (@iaincampbell07)Wed, Dec 10 2014 22:10:41Is their heart in it? Impacts? Basis of yield projections. Not to mention how it'll play with nonresidents, EU, etc. RT @alexcobham: Gah!

- — Alex Cobham (@alexcobham)Wed, Dec 10 2014 22:06:07It matters, to understand basis for estimates of diverted profit, in order to assess the scope and likely value of Google tax proposal
- — Toby Quantrill (@TobyQuantrill1)Thu, Dec 11 2014 08:10:23@alexcobham if you can't count it, it doesn't matter? Not sure. Google tax may be more interesting in principle than in practice?
- — Alex Cobham (@alexcobham)Thu, Dec 11 2014 08:43:44@TobyQuantrill1 no - if you can't evaluate it, it *may* not matter. E.g. DPT may be radical break from ALP but if revenue impact zero..

- — Alex Cobham (@alexcobham)Wed, Dec 10 2014 22:10:32But for now, I don't think I can make judgement until the government published the actual estimates. (Waiting for replies to emails...)

UK's Google tax - not yet countable
Frustration that a week on, the calculation of revenue impact of the proposed Google tax remains unpublished.
