UK sides with President Trump on China; to purge Huawei from 5G net

In another strong signal that telecom equipment maker Huawei is not welcome in the West, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson ordered Huawei equipment to be purged completely from Britain’s 5G network by the end of 2027, siding with U.S. President Trump.

Reuters:

HuaweiReversing a January decision to allow Huawei to supply up to 35% of the non-core 5G network, Johnson banned British telecoms operators from buying any 5G equipment from Huawei by year-end and gave them seven years to rip out existing gear.

“This has not been an easy decision, but it is the right one for the UK telecoms networks, for our national security and our economy, both now and indeed in the long run,” digital minister Oliver Dowden told parliament. “By the time of the next election, we will have implemented in law an irreversible path for the complete removal of Huawei equipment from our 5G networks.”

The Dec. 31, 2027 deadline will please British telecoms operators such as BT, Vodafone, and Three, which had feared they would be forced to spend billions of pounds to rip out Huawei equipment much faster…

London has been dismayed by a crackdown in Hong Kong and the perception China did not tell the whole truth over the novel coronavirus outbreak…

After Australia first raised alarms about the risk of 5G being hijacked by a hostile state, the West has become steadily more worried about Huawei. The United States calls the company an agent of the Chinese Communist state — a view widely supported in Johnson’s own Conservative Party.

Nokia and Ericsson said they stood ready to replace Huawei gear.

MacDailyNews Take: Good news, certainly, for Nokia, Ericsson, and every other non-CCP telecom equipment maker.

  1. China has no real intention to become the dominating power through force. Their plan, and it’s a documented plan, is to use “subtle” measures to achieve the dominant position and 5G is at least A way, but in reality it could be THE way to achieve their goals, if their Huawei 5G plan has broad success. Where they implement 5G, they will be the “Guardians” of nearly everything.

    Trump is the ONLY president and the only govt official with any notable verve since Nixon Started the “letting,” to stop the fawning and deferring of important national resources to China. There’s no voice on the left that speaks with any level of similar concern and this includes Biden. There was a time years ago when he voiced concern, but this has evolved into a mostly fraternal and personally lucrative relationship with the Chinese.

    It’s clear Trump is offensive to many and polarizing overall, but if there was a one-issue reason to vote for him, this is it. No hyperbole here, being ruled by an autocratic and tyrannical govt like China, is a real consideration on this day as their economy is estimated, by some, to be 10-15 years away from overtaking ours…esp if we continue with the status quo. Add the success of their Huawei plan and it will come much sooner.

    1. Little Lord Grifter is a corrupt bad business man who managed to take a casino (his) down and has been bankrupt at least 4 times. The worse president since Harding or Hoover. A Putin lover.

        1. Not at the expense of our own democracy! Anything good an authoritarian may do is negated by their authoritarianism. But with this clown authoritarianism is only the beginning.

          He’s wiped his butt with the Constitution since day 1. The very thing he is sworn to protect.

          1. OK, please articulate President Trump’s constitutional violations.

            I’m sure if true your revelations will appear on the front page of The NY Times and breaking news on CNN.

            Certainly, Pelosi rush to judgement to save the Constitution and the country with the bogus impeachment the average person calls 🐂💩 and knows the partisan score.

            Why not you?…

            1. Nothing unknown, nothing new.

              Separation of powers:
              Blocking congressional oversight.
              Firing Inspectors General
              Denial of passports to US citizens
              Non-Renwal of Global Entry to NYers

              Emoluments
              Hatch Act.
              Quid Pro Quo with foreign agents for individual gain. Yes, the no witnesses allowed impeachment.

              Daily lying and misleading of the American people.
              Political Self Preservation through pandemic as priority. Virus is not a “hoax”

              Lies, colllusion and subterfuge at every turn. Please! Bring back Nixon!

    2. Yes The Donald is impressive. He managed to bring back the 1918 Pandemic, the 1929 Depression and the 1968 race riots all at the smem time…very impressiv!
      Can we please all agree that this experiment of having a dumb TV host and shady real estate developer with 6 bankrupcies, 5 ids from 3 different marriages, 11 charges of secual asslt and 4000-plus lawsuits as president is NOT GOING WELL AT ALL???

      1. “He managed to bring back the 1918 Pandemic, the 1929 Depression and the 1968 race riots all at the smem time…very impressiv!”

        Absolutely, the Bad Don did all those things, shame on him and he should resign immediately!!! /s

        “smem time” and “very impressiv!”

        🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

        1. Yup, lots of typos. The reason is I have big fingers caused by hard Honest work using my hands making it hard to type on A small iPhone key pad. It should be much easier with your girly fingers right? Perhaps you should do something creative like…..work for a living.

          1. I couldn’t care less about your fingers EXCUSE. Learn the language and proper spelling and don’t type while you’re high or drunk. You have more than enough time in Mom’s basement to LEARN.

            But that deflection is totally irrelevant. Keep up with REALITY and STOP blaming our Great President Trump with liberal fantasy fairy tales.

            Get a grip, BUSTER!

  2. Focus Danox. Focus on the thrust of the point.

    A good president, or the best president is not good at all, IF they let China continue with their leeching and mischief.

    1. Too obvious, Danox is totally incapable of being rational and personal HATE blinds him to reality.

      Keeps posting the same lines of failures, over and over, and as the selective hit man he or she is, NEVER posts the positives of President Trump that far outweigh the negatives. Spout all you want broken record of irrelevancy won’t waste my time responding to you.

      Agree with your post 100%, particularly Trump is the first president since Nixon to have the Moxie and the business smarts to take on China in numerous areas while weak presidents for decades rolled over and kowtowed to China. Same with the weak CEO of Apple on censorship and human rights abuses…

    1. I guess you’re still nursing the classic written by Christopher Steel, titled the Steel Dossier? Though it’s now been filed in the Fiction section, I bet you enjoyed the “Yellow Showers” chapter that contained info attributed to Mr. Putin?

        1. No country is to be dismissed, but Russia alone is like an irritating buzzing bee compared to China. Their economy is tiny. Simplistic and naive comparison.

          Now, no conflation, like the lawyer…I said “not to be dismissed.”

          1. All the white Russians in the far east are moving out, back to western Russia Comrade Trumpet, and guess who is moving with a contract to sign and a smile. 🙂

            1. Got it!

              You are not serious or factual and like a child ignored by your parents or peers in school you are only looking for attention.

              Personally speaking, Danox is a waste of time…

  3. Dearest DANOX:

    Please tell us, how many times have you choked on that bitter “useful idiot” Kool-Aid you’ve been guzzling for all these years.? Don’t you realize you’ve been Goebell-ized by the media and Marxist professors’ infinitely repeated falsehoods? The Hitler-ites must be so proud.

    For you, it’s become “truth”—all opinion and no actual proof.

    So sad, “A good mind is a terrible thing to waste.” And yours is truly a wasteland.
