From an article in The Guardian


Damian Green, the former first secretary of state, first raised the issue. He asked the PM:

The prime minister is conscious of the very widespread concern in this house about the plans to involve Huawei in 5G networks, concerns that will have only been increased by the news this week that France is building a new 5G network without the involvement of Huawei, following the lead of Australia. If they can do it, we could do it.
Can the prime minister confirm that he wants to reduce Huawei’s involvement over time and can he give a timescale as to when that involvement will hit zero?

Johnson replied:

[Green is] certainly right that we are going to be reducing involvement of Huawei below the 35% market cap, but he’s also right in his general vision, which is one I entirely share.
What has happened is, I’m afraid, a failure of like-minded countries to produce an alternative to the 5G network, except that provided by high-risk vendors, and that is why we are now doubling the science budget and we will be working with some of the countries that he mentions in order to produce exactly that diversification in the market.



We are tied to Huawei, they ignored advice and charged headlong into the deal. So, how is that trade deal with the US of A looking now?

Obviously BawJaws knew this before the General Election but kept quiet about it because he knew it would effect the Trade Deal...

Is this a sign of [Brexit] things to come?

Time will tell but so far, I'm not impressed with life in the Big Brexit House.

The trade deal is looking OK , according to Pompeo we're head of the line.
The Huawei decision has one eye on a China trade deal and as long as their tech isn't in a position that could cause a problem to our security then it's understandable why the decision was made.

I the issue is Huawei compromising security via backdoors.

That's the inheret security risk they pose.

No one actually believes the Chinese are well meaning, like the story that broke a few months ago about finding hidden chinese chips in tech products being shipped abroad to network centers....

Trump wants a deal with the UK.

Boris is working with what they got left after the EU divorce.

I think the Huawei issue may have some things to iron out.

But Trade is a number of things, so who knows?

But that is the problem. Huawei IS proven to be a high security risk, proven. That's why the Americans wont use them nor France. Just why we have let them have ANY involvement at all is supremely stupid.

Aren't you afraid of Chinese backdoors, via Huawei?

This isn't a me and you thing, rather, a national security issue where you take NO CHANCES with High Risk vendors, like the Chinese.

Got to admit I don't know enough about the technical side of this but I have to say I'm very wary of allowing the Chinese anywhere near something like this.
I'm not an overly paranoid person but I simply wouldn't trust them having anything to with it.

I'd rather the Government would use the trade plan they agreed with the EU..if they did get one that is!

American techy stuff in the past was pretty grotty...I know I had to use it.

It's good to be cautious.
