Dominic Raab unsettles Huawei opponents by being nice for once | John Crace

Foreign secretary’s bucket of tranquillizers before statement sees Commons drift into oblivionMove along. Nothing to see here. Dominic Raab usually prepares for an afternoon statement in the Commons by pumping iron in the gym. Only once his neck veins are bulging and his anger levels are sufficiently raised is he ready to take on anyone. MPs who get in his way are treated merely as collateral damage. At best they can hope to get away with a non-disclosure agreement. At worst, they wind up encased in concrete pillars. Raab has left his mark on carparks all over the country.But for the statement on the government’s heavily trailed decision to let Huawei build some of the UK’s 5G network, the foreign secretary had been put on a much milder regime by his personal trainer. Some gentle Zen stretches, a few meditational oms and a bucketful of anti-psychotics and tranquillizers. And it worked an absolute treat. Because Raab could not have been more charming if he tried. A sight that so unsettled most Labour MPs that they left the chamber before he had got going. Continue reading...

The Guardian view on Huawei and 5G: the risks are real | Editorial

Boris Johnson’s decision to green light the Chinese firm’s role in Britain’s digital future was understandable. But maximum vigilance is requiredThe lead-up to Britain’s formal departure from the European Union, at 11pm on Friday, has made headlines mainly due to a somewhat bathetic row over Big Ben and church bells. But in Downing Street, the fraught navigation of a post-Brexit landscape began in earnest this week, with a new kind of crisis over sovereignty.Boris Johnson’s decision to allow the Chinese tech company Huawei a substantial role in supplying Britain’s 5G network is his first key geopolitical move, raising vital questions over data security. The green light to Huawei was given in the teeth of concerted opposition from the US and some of the prime minister’s own backbenchers. America has warned that the company’s participation in 5G networks would represent a major security risk to the west, given its close relationship to the Chinese state. Huawei has already been excluded from 5G networks in Japan and Australia on the grounds that control of vital infrastructure could fall into the hands of a potentially hostile power. One Republican senator said on Tuesday that “London has freed itself from Brussels only to cede sovereignty to Beijing”. Continue reading...

Johnson won’t say so, but the real decision about Huawei was made years ago | Alex Hern

For all the opposition on security grounds, the tradeoff has already been accepted and the equipment installedThe odd thing about today’s decision to allow Huawei to help build the UK’s 5G network – albeit with the company’s overall involvement capped at 35% of the market – is that the real decision was made years ago.Because Huawei has already helped to build the UK’s 5G network, which is running in cities across the nation. You don’t have to take my word for it. If you know what you’re looking for, you can spot Huawei towers on rooftops and cabinets on street corners. If you really know what you’re looking for, you can even tell which of them are beaming out 5G signals. And even if you can’t, there’s always the chance that a messy contractor has helpfully left the packaging lying around with the Huawei logos clearly visible. Continue reading...

Huawei decision is a sensible compromise but could still anger US

Boris Johnson strikes balance between security concerns and the need for a fast rollout of 5GIt may not please large segments of the Conservative party, but Boris Johnson’s Huawei decision is a realistic attempt to find a compromise between legitimate security concerns about the Chinese company and the need for a fast and affordable roll out of 5G networks in the UK.The decision to designate Huawei a “high risk” vendor is a statement of the obvious, when accompanied by a warning from the National Cyber Security Centre, an arm of GCHQ, that “the Chinese state (and associated actors) have carried out and will continue to carry out cyber-attacks against the UK and our interests”.

UK Huawei decision appears to avert row with US

US sources say special relationship too important to jeopardise over Chinese tech firmDecision takes UK down path of least resistanceBoris Johnson appears to have averted a full-blown confrontation with the White House over Huawei, after the government designated the Chinese technology firm a “high-risk vendor” and imposed a cap on its involvement in building the UK’s 5G telecoms network.The Trump administration had given a series of strongly worded warnings about the security risks in the run-up to the decision, but was preparing to soften its stance after a phone call between the British prime minister and the US president on Tuesday afternoon.

NSC meets to decide Huawei's role in 5G network, as US senators urge Johnson to boycott Chinese firm - live news

Rolling coverage of the day’s political developments as they happen 11.37am GMT Here are some of the more interesting articles and tweets on the Huawei/5G story that I’ve seen this morning.The US has taken a hard line because it knows the UK decision has global significance.Many other countries are going through similar debates right now. Like the UK, they would like to use Huawei because it is cheap but fear the security risks and the wrath of the US.What No. 10 really thinks: My colleague Annabelle Dickson reports this is ultimately a trade-off that Downing Street is prepared to make. She says today’s big decision on Huawei reflects the new strategic thinking inside No. 10, where senior officials prioritize potentially revolutionary advances in technology over the marginal gains of increased transatlantic trade. “Former ministers and officials who are familiar with the mind-set of Johnson and his top adviser Dominic Cummings say privately that modern tech infrastructure is much more important to the pair’s vision for the U.K.’s future economy than trade with the U.S., welcome as a quick deal would be,” she reports.Read the quotes: “If you are Dom and the PM, you know in 10 years we want to be a high-tech Silicon Valley across the whole of the U.K.,” says one government official who has worked closely with both men. “We need high-speed internet across the country to do that. That is more important than getting slightly cheaper meat.” The official continues: “While trade deals are a Tory MP obsession … Dom would come from the school of thought that the point of trade deals and leaving the EU is to make your own domestic market more dynamic and more responsive.” Imagine the situation the other way round. Would China allow a British or American company to get itself near the heart of its secret systems? Of course not. The Huawei case is actually worse than that, because whereas British or American companies have independent lives of their own, a country like China does not. Huawei is an arm of the Chinese state, and Beijing would never allow it otherwise. That state remains, despite all the reforms, a one-party, totalitarian system.Indeed the present condition of the Chinese Communist party seems to be reverting in its leadership cult, its ultra-secrecy and its hostility to exterior powers to the mindset of the Chairman Mao era. THREAD: I’m pretty sick of the poor quality debate about whether to involve Huawei in the roll-out of 5G in the UK and elsewhere. The simple fact is that it is NOT the only provider of 5G networks - but it is the largest and (surprise!) the CHEAPESTWake up call: China’s massive monetary support for Huawei’s R&D into 5G (and thus the entire future of the way we communicate with each other, HELLO!) is DESIGNED to destroy competitors like Ericsson, Nokia and Samsung. With Huawei *everywhere*, imagine trying to dismantle it?To conclude: If Western governments HAD SOME COURAGE, they would start backing THEIR OWN companies in the development of 5G, rather than falling for technology from a government which is NOTORIOUS for industrial and other types of espionage.In all of the reporting of the Huawei story a couple of things are often ignored. There’s not one single UK 5G network but 4, and three of them are already rolling out with Huawei - here right at the heart of the city of London pic.twitter.com/sC4dDJ39LU 11.19am GMT Here is the full text of the migration advisory committee’s report (pdf). It runs to 278 page.There is also an annex (pdf) running to 103 pages. Continue reading...

Huawei should get a limited 5G role – the US trade deal can wait | Nils Pratley

A security issue should see Boris Johnson back his security advisers, even if it makes Trump furiousShould Chinese firm Huawei’s kit be banned from the UK’s 5G network? As with HS2, Boris Johnson is guaranteed to end up infuriating one side of the argument. The stakes, though, are substantially higher here, whatever the prime minister says about his hopes for compromise. One route could lead to trade conflict with the US. The other could pile costs on to the UK’s 5G network, with a knock-on impact on UK competitiveness. Related: Keir Starmer accuses Boris Johnson of 'doing a runner' on Huawei Continue reading...

Boris Johnson hints at compromise over Huawei and 5G

Huawei decision weighs technological benefits against political risks

US has been lobbying hard against Chinese firm but has yet to give UK a good enough reason to change stanceBoris Johnson is expected to meet members of the national security council on Tuesday to decide whether the Chinese telecoms equipment maker Huawei should be allowed to supply equipment for the UK’s 5G mobile phone networks. Intelligence services and armed forces chiefs will be on hand to give advice, but the final decision will be taken by a core group of politicians including Dominic Raab, the foreign secretary, Priti Patel, the home secretary, and the defence secretary, Ben Wallace.

Brexit: No 10 does not rule out using fishing as bargaining chip in UK-EU trade talks – live news

Rolling coverage of the day’s political developments as they happenVaradkar: EU will have upper hand in trade talksImmigration: fast-track ‘global talent visa’ to be launched days after Brexit Auf Wiedersehen, adieu: UK MEPs face final week 1.35pm GMT Boris Johnson is expected to hold an extensive government reshuffle next month. But, according to a report out today (pdf) from the Institute for Government, he should think twice before he does. The IfG says that in Britain ministers move post too often and that government would be better run if they stayed put for longer.According to the report, since 1997 cabinet secretaries have stayed in post for just two years on average. The IfG says this means they move almost as often as football managers, and more than twice as often as the CEOs of major companies.Playing musical chairs with the ministers in charge of key public priorities is not a serious way to run the country. It is disruptive, wasteful and hinders government efforts to deliver the kind of long-term reforms needed to improve people’s lives. 1.16pm GMT “I wasn’t trained to lose,” the Tory Brexiter Mark Francois once famously claimed. But it is remarkable how easy it is to pick up new skills, even in middle age, and the Sun’s Tom Newton Dunn says Francois has admitted defeat in his campaign to use crowdfunding to get Big Ben to chime on Friday night to mark Brexit.The Big Ben Bong for Brexit bunch are throwing the towel in. Mark Francois announces the £272,000 raised so far will now go to @HelpforHeroes instead. So there's a happy ending after all. Continue reading...
