    Here we go - the xenophobia flag hoisted high and proud.

    Anyone remember when we were encouraged to 'Buy British'? I assume that is xenophobic nowadays too?

    When you say "offshore its IT business", are you concerned about the jurisdiction that your financial data will be stored in?

    For example, if the data is stored on US servers, The Patriot Act allows U.S. law enforcement and intelligence organisations to examine the data.

    Or do you just mean that you prefer to deal with UK based customer service teams?

    If you want UK-based customer service, try First Direct or Tesco.
