It has just been announced that Huawei is to be allowed to help build the 5G network in the UK. 

 

They will be prohibited from being involved in "sensitive areas" such as military and nuclear.

 

The report said that the USA will not be happy with this  decission, and that this may jeopardise the potential UK/US trade deal.

It's worth noting that the UK security services audited the Huawei software's source code and found no back doors. There were lots of security issues though and you may not need back doors if you can exploit them.

 

The NSA have a history of adding back doors into US comms equipment. Security issues are regularly found in US comms equipment too, although maybe not as many as with Huawei's.

It's also worth noting that Huawei also allegedly refused the NSA's request to put backdoors into their kit in 2014 - which some believe is part of the reason the US is making a lot of this noise.

"Here’s the sad truth: our special relationship is less special now that the U.K. has embraced the surveillance state commies at Huawei," said Sasse, who sits on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

Still obsessed with "commies", they're so pathetic.

 

 

It's been one day since Blighty OK'd Huawei for parts of 5G – and US politicians haven't overreacted at all. Wait, what? Surveillance state commies?

The point is, he's sticking his oar in, threatening us, once we leave we DO need a deal, we will be the desperate ones, not them. With the eu, this sovereignty we didn't have, where we didn't accept the Euro or the schengen zone.

whats the difference?
