Re: "The UK must continue to do its part"
Its just asset strip mate.
Its how things roll in a declining market.
Where do you imagine the commitment to return 30% of the value of DXC to shareholders over the first 3 years of DXC comes from? How can you strip that much ca$h from a company and still leave it functioning?
DXC or IBM or whoever, are businesses operating in a sector with no visible end of decline and no "next big thing" to move on to. The "next big thing" isn't big at all, its smaller and smaller, cheaper and cheaper. Its about on par with a car manufacturer finding cars are being replaced by bicycles.
