>Google is entitled to argue a defence of it being in the public interest to keep the search results. What if the spent conviction was for criminal damage but the detail was arson and ABC wanted to start a property disposal firm?

Yes Google could argue that, however, that also means Google doesn't understand just what "spent" means in this context and I would expect a UK court to throw Google's case out with no leave to appeal.
