The company currently has two large datacenters in the UK, and it is expanding these in response to vigorous demand for cloud services. But Brexit could throw a spanner in the works. Owen Larter, Microsoft's UK Government Affairs Manager, said that if import tariffs were imposed on the UK—one likely consequence of the UK leaving the EU's single market and customs union—then the company would have to reconsider. Larter said that the company's servers are built both in China and Eastern Europe. Presently, the devices assembled within the EU incur no tariffs on being brought into the UK.

Still a fair bit of cloud, but the rain-bearing fronts, for the most part, kept at bay. Further south and east, again, it could be a foggy start across some eastern counties of England, but I think most of that fog will lift. It shouldn't be as much of an issue. Again, the brightness not feeling too bad, but an edge to that wind - just 4 degrees, for example, in Norwich. That's a sign of things to come, because as we head into Thursday, we're going to start to tap into a reservoir of really chilly air across Europe.

Spain's east coast is being hit with heavy wind gusts and rainstorms that have resulted in port closures and evacuations in many towns. Bad weather conditions began taking a toll on Thursday, when authorities said around 2,000 people were trapped overnight in vehicles as heavy snowfall cut off several roads in eastern Spain, forcing the army's emergency unit to assist many along the highway linking Madrid to Valencia. Rainstorms and coastal wind gusts clocking close to 100 kph (around 60 mph) increased during the weekend, resulting in power outages in the regions of Albacete and Valencia, ...

Ukrainian Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak has urged U.S. President Donald Trump to continue providing his crisis-stricken country with political and military assistance, urging Trump to continue sanctions against Russia to deter further escalation of the war in eastern Ukraine by the Kremlin. In an exclusive interview with RFE/RL on January 21, a day after Trump's inauguration, Poltorak said it is very important for Ukraine to have the political backing of the United States and for Trump to keep sanctions imposed against Russia in place, as this is one of the major aspects that is deterring any further escalation on the part of President (Vladimir) Putin.

It's not about Eastern Europeans coming in and undercutting you, it is that this has been allowed to happen although everyone is too frightened to say, you voted to leave Europe because it is racist. There are lots of reasons that people might have voted to leave.

I don't think the United States will leave Nato. It is very unlikely. The question is whether Nato has become in some sense a dead letter, if Trump is not committed to it and doesn't see the Europeans as playing their part. What message does that send to Vladimir Putin and eastern Europe? If I lived in a Baltic state right now, I would be very worried. Vladimir Putin has an agenda clearly of weakening the European Union.

"He's also expressed a readiness to use nuclear weapons, which really frightens me." 'Obama thank you' Only around 30 peopleAmericans and Portuguese – turned up to a protest in Lisbon but they made clear that Trump's appointment was a step in the wrong direction. "Obama thank you, we will miss you," read one banner. However, Europe was not united in its condemnation of Trump. In Prague, photographers turned up to cover a protest that never took place for lack of activists. Meanwhile, in Warsaw, the foreign affairs ministers of Poland and Lithuania demonstrated that Russian aggression was paramount in their concerns, expressing the hope that Trump would back up commitments the Barrack Obama administration made to supporting defence in Eastern Europe. Poland's Witold Waszczykowski welcomed the Trump administration "with the hope to see it deal with security questions in our region".

He doesn't just mean Israel, he means the Arab Gulf, maybe countries in Eastern Europe if there is a problem. He will stick with these alliances. He said we will stick with our alliances and build new alliances based on common values and common ground is. Do you think he's fundamentally a businessman in the role of president? Is he essentially trying to get whatever the pragmatic business interests are for America first and foreign policy fits into that? He is formed out of two components.
