>Meanwhile, in the real world, the massive tech investment continues with corporations saying "no we don't give a shit about brexit actually, in fact, it's why we're investing here"
Meanwhile, in the real world, at the time of the vote I was working for a massive tech firm who decided to massively scale back their UK infrastructure and workforce and are considering exiting the UK completely as a direct result of Brexit. I was one of the 10% made redundant last year and I know of former colleagues who are in this year's 10%.
I returned to contracting and right now I'm working for a different massive tech firm who have been - and are doing - exactly the same thing.
I know there are a handful of specific examples about investment in the UK tech industry, but those seem to be split between companies taking a punt on the weak pound and those trying to pick up the business being abandoned by the companies scaling back their UK operations.
In all honesty I'm not seeing a trend towards investment in the UK *at this time* and certainly not massive amounts of investment.
In the end I don't know that the ultimate outcome will make too much difference to me in the short term anyway.
If Brexit goes ahead then there will be a lot of work in the IT sector building new systems that will be required for functions that are currently carried out by the EU, but will have to return to the UK.
If Brexit collapses, then many projects that are currently on-hold pending the outcome will come back to life.
