Information technology is an important tool for intelligence agencies. For the US, spying on other countries put it at a significant advantage to manipulate and blackmail other politicians and businesses of other countries. In this particular case, the US has been able to control the UK (possibly through blackmail) to make it serves it interest.
I'm British and feel deeply embarrassed at the actions and rhetoric coming from my own government. In particular, I can't understand why the UK wants to inflict humiliation on itself because we all know the world is watching and fully understands the situation.
I'm always embarrassed and disappointed in my country's government. Smh
@lala Then you can leave the country
I can't understand why Truss and Boorish can't have your level of intelligence.
The elected PM system in UK, I can only surmise , is malfunctioning , and producing weird characters unfit to lead the UK , or even to look after its people.
Competition between suppliers drives product advancements. When governments remove competitors from the supply market there is usually a slow down in product improvements.
Uk should ditch Huawei 5G equipment and focus its efforts to help Ukraine. Slava Ukraine!
Are we a lackey to those gringos in the USA or do we have our own foreign policy??? I will leave it for those who strive for neutrality and common sense to decide.
The problem is not Huawei, China is developing its own technologies and that is the real problem.
US cant stand the competition haha
There are still many places in the UK where you can’t even get a mobile phone signal

I tend to replace the word "allies" with servants.
In addition, the free market is only free when they say so.
As a European resident I await the day that Europe ditches the US and embraces Russia as part of Europe - unfortunately it would seem that this prospect still terrifies Germany who quite like their dominant position in the Union.
Not while Germany and the US are in charge
Honestly, Im surprised the eu still considers the us an ally
I think I.ve read after taking out Huawei kit Britain has had to put a lot of it back as no one else can supply similar up to date 5g kit..at a huge cost to the tax payer.
The US is curtailing Huawei while at the same time not offering any alternative to their 5G products. Ericsson and Nokia are European companies, but guess where the majority of their products are produced? Ericsson and Nokia also license essential 5G patents from Huawei. So in the end with Ericsson and Nokia you're still getting Chinese made products using Chinese technology, but paying 30%-50% more for the privilege. Paying more for less, it's the American way...
