Google pushing cookie responsibility on bloggers

Yes, the European Union is a pain in the arse. Britain clearly tired of their shenanigans. But when European law and Google's business model collide on a blogger's page, Google makes it clear that the blogger is legally responsible to give notice of Google's data mining practices. "European Union laws require you to give European Union visitors information about cookies used on your blog. In many cases, these laws also require you to obtain consent. You are responsible for confirming this notice actually works for your blog, and that it displays. If you employ other cookies, for example by adding third party features, this notice may not work for you. Learn more about this notice and your responsibilities." Well, Google, well European Union... for my response, I refer you to the photo of the right-honourable gentleman, Linus Torvalds, displayed moments ago.
