HENCE HUAWEI

By Pete Moore On April 25th, 2019

I get it now.

It might seems strange to let the Chinese build our nuclear power plants and national communications network. But the needs of bankers come before national security. Just like the needs of bankers come before democracy.

  1. the needs of bankers come before national security

    ” Bankers ” can be a sort of sloppy curse-word. ( See anything that Allan ever wrote. It’s close enough to Michael Moore. )

    China has plenty of money, they don’t necessarily need the cash or financing that your bankers can provide.

    The British government may be making bad decisions here, but is it all due to ” evil bankers and their servants “?

    Might not Hammond think that closer economic ties with China are actually good for the British economy? Or is he simply a traitor who endangers your national security to put more cash in his buddies’ pockets?

  2. Whoever leaked this story is being pursued. It could cost them:

    “A formal inquiry has begun into the leaking of discussions about Huawei at the National Security Council, the BBC has learned. This follows the Daily Telegraph publishing details of a meeting about using the Chinese telecoms firm to help build the UK’s 5G network.

    Several cabinet ministers have denied they were involved in the leak.”

    Hammond is much closer to the latter. A common mistake is to assume that a politician acts in his country’s interest. Some might attempt to do so, but Hammond is an anti=democratic globalist and one of the chief betrayers of the people. He is always acting for and on behalf of the globalists’ interests.

  4. That leak came the same day that Trump’s state visit was announced. May’s decision to defy Trump on this issue will not help the atmosphere, assuming that she is still in post at the start of June:

    “The timing of the (leaked) announcement was also particularly bad, not just in relation to Trump’s planned visit, but in coming on the heels of a report that the CIA warned its “Five Eyes” intelligence partners that Huawei received funding from China’s People’s Liberation Army, one of its intelligence services, and its National Security Commission. That follows a warning from Britain’s National Cyber Security Centre about Huawei’s “shoddy” security…

    The United States learned to its cost that such activities go beyond mere information gathering and surveillance and can extend to blatant theft of personal information, such as the 2015 hack of the US government’s Office of Personnel Management, through which sensitive data on millions of Americans was stolen. Such events don’t even begin to address the amount of intellectual property theft committed each year in China, which the US Trade Representative estimated costs American firms at least £38bn ($50bn) per year. And one in five North American corporations now report being hacked by Chinese sources, according to a CNBC poll.

    Far from being a benign presence interacting with Western societies, China has chosen to act as an aggressor. Whether through direct government policy, corporations, or indirect actors, Chinese entities represent at a minimum bad faith actors taking advantage of the West’s openness; at a maximum, they are a serious, potentially devastating threat.”

  5. China is a problem, and if they’re not checked, they’ll be a much bigger problem in ten years.

    Trump’s basic position towards China has been correct.

    Previous presidents, from Nixon to Obama, were way too soft on China. China has been treated as a poor third world country, which is not what they are anymore.
