Microsoft reaffirms its commitment to the UK

Microsoft has reaffirmed its commitment to the UK after the Brexit vote despite scaremongering before the referendum that it might impact on jobs and investment.

The UK accounts for 6-7% of Microsoft's global revenues and its UK datacentres allow the company to tap into hundreds of millions of pounds of lucrative UK government business where strict rules prevent the transfer of data outside the UK.

During the referendum campaign the Remainiacs were spinning that Microsoft might cut jobs and investment if we voted to leave despite Microsoft signing a new 15 year lease on its Reading campus in 2013.
