In a move that will definitely upset Beijing, the UK government will soon be announcing that Huawei will be banned from our comms infrastructure from next year.
It looks like a group of 40-60 Tory backbenchers have won a very significant victory over their own government, by applying sufficient pressure to get the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, to drop Huawei from our communications infrastructure plans.
And further, it looks like the ban could be extended to stripping the whole of our comms network of Huawei kit by as soon as the end of 2024 – that is according to the Telegraph.
Although the Times said it could be 2027.
The rebel Tory MPs are rightly concerned about having a Chinese tech giant – that is ultimately controlled by the Chinese Communist Party in Beijing – interweaving potentially eavesdropping kit, or worse, into the fabric of our comms systems.
