A UK Prime Minister’s spokesperson denies Microsoft’s claim that the CMA’s decision is bad for Britain


Yesterday, we conveyed to you the statements of Brad Smith, the head of Microsoft against the United Kingdom, after the British Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) decided to prevent the Xbox acquisition of Activision Blizzard, during which he said that the authority’s decision is bad for Britain, and it seems that Smith’s statements have attracted the attention of the British Prime Minister .

The official spokesperson for the British Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, told Reuters That Smith’s statements have no basis in truth, and that this kind of allegations are not supported by facts, indicating that Britain will continue to deal normally with Microsoft, and confirm that the British Competition and Markets Authority is an independent body.

Brad Smith had made it clear that Microsoft was not happy with the decision, although the company will appeal the decision in hopes of completing its $68.7 billion acquisition of Activision Blizzard.
