You obviously don't live here. None of us think that.
Brexit is the best thing the british people could do. But the western world is the most corrupt. The western people are deceived to think that the western world is democratic and ultimate perfection. But in fact, the western wold is NOT a democracy but a corporatocracy. The politicians are corrupt and puppets. The puppeteers are the bankers, corporations, establishment like George Soros. Their interest is the EU for example. EU is an antidemocratic organization, whose purpose is to serve the interest of corporations, establishment. EU removes the freedom of nations and their governments.
They want to punish/sanction Great Britain for Brexit. One of the weapons of punishment is the money. They reduce the value of the British pound, increase prices artifically, ... And the brainwashing mainstream media (which is also controlled by the establishment) is propagating and deceiving people to blame Brexit for these things.
the economy always put up prices why don't they ever put them down they always blame resestion and now brexit for price rise no wonder people hold on to there money now a days
One side is the economy actually suffering, which took a big hit with brexit and led to many trade agreements being withdrawn and companies moving out and having additional operation costs if stayed in the U.K, while the other side to the story is companies "punishing" the U.K. With price hikes, which is totally socially acceptable so they can. Either way U.K. Is up for rough years to come.
I would just like to point out for all the people knocking on Brexit that the vast majority of the drop in the relative value of the pound over the last decade happened well BEFORE the Brexit vote. Why has it been losing value for so long if it's all Brexit's fault...?

Phinch88, 15 Feb 2017absolutely disgusting business practice, Uk gets way overcharged for its products anyway, the ... moreit is much lower.... you just don't want to believe that brexit will hurt your country very much in the next decade.
Brexit my ass !! Just greed, nothing more. Microsoft has always charged as much as it can for it's products, no difference here. Market forces the only deterrent, luckily for consumers.

In Australia when they brought in the carbon tax prices when up across the board for everything, then when it was abolished the prices remained the same.
[deleted post]Seems that the child is another.
The Brexit itself it not bad. The problem is the people who did it... they are acting like children, even after succedign, they quits. What kind of profesionals are they?
And now the idea of the companies hiking prices is to avoid to being screwed up for children like you who wants to boycott them, damaging even more the selling forecasting.
Seems that you don't know nothing about economy. A radical change must always come with a very deep thought. And seems that they failed hard on the last part.
The British pound always bounces back. Couple years be back to normal.
I'm glad I got my surface book a year ago. I just would not pay anymore than I did. But I have to admit it's the best.
Probably be last Microsoft I get as nokia is back now.
Apple pretty good to.

Just picked up a used top of the line MacBook Air for a bargain price and it is fast enough to do me over until the new stylus equipped Chromebooks hit the market. Best of both worlds!
I live in the UK and I voted for Brexit and if I had I had the choice I would vote to Brexit again!
What annoys me is that every company and every business that fails or is greedy blames Brexit! If Brexit is really to blame/ falling pound how come when it was $1.50 to the pound awhile ago, That Microsoft didn't reduce its products in the UK by 25%.
Same as Adobe and Microsoft and other greedy companies, Boycott them and then they will reduce there prices!
I thought the pound is higher now than what it was in value..? The prices are pretty steep.
Johnny Holmes, 15 Feb 2017The pound is lower (read less valuable) than before Brexit. Check your facts. http://www.xe.c... moreHe knows better! Also - if MS is a greedy corporation that "Uk gets way overcharged for its products anyway, " then maybe UK should start producing their own hardware and software? that would be better priced for the market? :D
