High Tech companies say “Yes” to post Brexit UK
Apple, Google, Facebook and IBM announce multi-million pound investments in Post-Brexit UK.
Four of the biggest IT companies in the world have just announced huge investment in London’s High Tech industry. The post-Brexit decisions make the announcements even more significant.
First up was Apple to announce plans to create a a campus in battersea that will make it the areas biggest employer. Google then came out with its plans to build its brand new headquarters in Kings Cross. This was closely followed by Facebook who says it will double its UK operations in 2017 and finally IBM announced its own multi-million pound investment in the UK.
Four Major IT Companies commit to massive investments in the UK.
All four announcements seem to suggest that Brexit was not a major factor and that it is more important to them that the UK is increasingly seem as an important centre for IT. If this means my EE mobile phone will finally work where I live (just 30 miles outside London) it will be happy days.
The Apple negotiations for the move into Battersea Power Station have been running for well over a year. The flagship location is as significant to the Apple brand as it is to a post-Brexit Britain worried about its relationships with overseas investors. Britain has grown into something of a tech hub in recent years and these latest announcements will certainly reinforce that position. Whilst London is playing a major role, the increase in IT investment does extend well outside the capital itself. Between 2010 and 2015 the number of UK tech firms increased by a staggering 30 per cent.
It’s all good news for the UK economy, not just because of the size of the companies involved, or indeed the investment money involved. For the UK it is the actual timing of these investments which has the most value. It is a vote of confidence at a time when it is needed most.
Whether you voted to leave the EU or stay, there is no pleasure for either side in seeing the UK economy grind to a standstill. Announcements like this will not only help UK moral but will also encourage other companies to follow suit.

At £100 to double-you’re not really competing with large scale seasoned professionals.
Once you go down the doubling numbers you begin to compete in effect with institutions and or Goverment policy etc(as that kind of continual doubling becomes an Intrest to the other 7 billion people and stated Goverment)
As a result-after a handful of these ‘doubling’ moves…the ability and time and competing positions from other investors and said governments etc just make the ability a compounded hardness.
Hopefully as we become more sophisticated we can enjoy these posts but realise they are like any other headline….attention seeking!
I’m afraid that none of that is even remotely true, Gerry. Remember, DYWTAM was written by not one, but two, multi-millionaires using these very techniques. I suspect that you’ve been ripped off in the past by the many “get rich quick schemes” that are out there. That’s a real shame. Having done all of the fourteen levels myself, (and I watch others do the same every week), I feel highly qualified to disagree with every single one of your comments. If you’re not rich now then you have to change your thinking if you want to make serious money. Here’s the thing; “If you keep doing what you’ve always done – you’ll keep getting what you’ve always got”. Stop and think about that for a minute. I don’t know if you live in a two million pound house but if you don’t, here you are telling someone who does that this won’t work. Really? The DYWTAM Programme is a genuine no-nonsense guide on how to become a millionaire – and absolutely anyone can do it.
Barry, is it only 10 issues of Double your way to a Million? A friend of mine who is interested wants to know, thanks.
Yes. That’s correct. One a month for ten months.
hi barry i am interested in your horse racing course and your recommendation of using isiris,i understand kevin booth has resigned from isiris do you still recommend we use this company still thank you,and also i notice on your websitethat it is still dated 2017 .
Good question. I have not used the Isiris service recently. I had a brilliant 11 year run but eventually I got closed down by all the bookmakers. I guess that’s a real sign of success but it was fun to do and I actually miss it. I did not know that Kevin had actually retired but I understand that the results this year have been extremely good. Maybe regular readers who still use Isiris can update me on that one and let me know how they are doing.
