Rural Dutch hate Microsoft’s data centre plans
Why eliminate farm land when there are starving Brits across the channel?
Software King of the World Microsoft is squaring off against Holland’s farmers as it wants to take land to build data centres.
The Dutch think it is much better to grow food to sell people, particularly those in the UK who have been forced to live off turnips since leaving the EU. Microsoft thinks the land should be used to get around European data protection laws and so that it can export piles of European cash to Redmond.
