HUAWEI: Is It Safe?
Huawei, is bidding to build part of the UK's 5G network. Tomorrow, Parliament will make a decision on the future of the project.
Hauwei is BANNED in the USA, Australia and New Zealand.
The Americans believe that Hauwei is a security threat and that it maybe unsafe to use, as it receives massive state subsidy.
The US, has warned the UK, that engaging Huawei, will have repercussions economically and within the Intelligence sharing community of the 5 Eyes.
Can the UK afford to be walking the tight rope with America at this fine time, whilst BREXIT is fast approaching?
The potential for a "Gold Standard" trade agreement, between the USA and UK, could be in jeopardy, if the UK forges ahead with it's Huawei plans.
The problem with the 5G network, is the level of integration.
British Intelligence Service's are confident, that they can protect the UK's sensitive core assets from China, in the event of state sponsored malice.
However, is China a friend or a foe? I'm not sure. Is it worth taking the risk?
