    Reports have circulated that Prime Minister Boris Johnson will call for Chinese-controlled Huawei to be locked out from Britain’s 5G by the end of this year, after the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) concluded that the products are not secure. The NCSC made the ruling that Huawei’s technology was not safe to use, in light of U.S. sanctions that block the Chinese tech firm from using American components. The prospect of Huawei using alternative components, certainly Chinese, “fundamentally changes” the situation, according to a Whitehall source speaking to The Times. Government ministers who sit on the National Security Council will...

China has breached its international obligations to the United Kingdom under the joint declaration.

  • No10 'declares war on woke': Boris Johnson 'is taking on cultural battles over statues to shore up Tory base'

    Boris Johnson has declared “war on woke” and is taking on battles over historical statues and race to shore up the Tory base, it was claimed today. Downing Street advisers are said to be keen for the PM to take high-profile stands on cultural issues, focusing on improving life chances rather than bowing to pressure from the Left. The choice of Munira Mirza, the head Mr Johnson’s policy unit, to set up the new race commission appears to be a sign of the government’s approach. Supporters say she is an advocate of data-driven policies, but campaigners and Labour MPs say...

    Former Conservative prime minister David Cameron lashed out at Boris Johnson today, branding his decision to axe the UK’s foreign aid department a “mistake”. In what is believed to be his first policy intervention since quitting in 2016. ex-premier Mr. Cameron joined his Labour predecessors to criticize Mr. Johnson’s decision to scrap the Department for International Development. The Prime Minister told MPs in the Commons today it will be merged into the Foreign Office to create the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, in a bid to “maximize British influence” overseas. He said the move would “unite our aid with our...

    Heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury has told Boris Johnson to “grow a pair” after seeing Sir Winston Churchill’s statue in Parliament Square repeatedly vandalised at Black Lives Matter protests. The wartime prime minister’s statue has been defaced with graffiti branding him a racist and slogans such as “BLACK LIVES MATTER” and “ACAB” (“All Coppers Are Bastards”) at Black Lives Matter demonstrations in the United Kingdom, which have quickly moved on from protesting the death of George Floyd in the United States to demands for the removal historic monuments and memorials whose activities and views are considered problematic by the standards...

    London (AFP) - Hundreds of people took to the streets of London on Wednesday to protest against the death in US police custody of George Floyd, as Prime Minister Boris Johnson condemned the killing but dodged questions about whether he had raised the issue with key ally Donald Trump. Protesters, many of them in facemasks, defied coronavirus restrictions, and held aloft signs saying "Justice for George Floyd" and "Enough is enough!" as they marched from Hyde Park to the Whitehall government district in central London. The demonstration is the latest in the British capital since Floyd, an unarmed African-American, died...

Trump’s announcement will profoundly affect the future of Hong Kong and the U.S.-China relationship.The president’s decision was based on Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s certification to Congress Wednesday that “Hong Kong is no longer autonomous from China,” a decision he said gave him no pleasure but that “sound policy-making requires a recognition...

    The Prime Minister plans to reduce Huawei’s involvement in Britain’s 5G network in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, the Telegraph has learned. Boris Johnson has instructed officials to draw up plans that would see China’s involvement in the UK’s infrastructure scaled down to zero by 2023. It comes as Mr Johnson is poised to visit the US for the G7 summit next month in his first trip abroad since the crisis began. Having called for the UK to become more self-sufficient and less reliant on China for goods, he is expected to ramp up trade talks with US President...

    The coronavirus death-forecast model that apparently convinced President Trump and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to shift to a policy featuring unprecedented lockdowns of the healthy "could go down in history as the most devastating software mistake of all time, in terms of economic costs and lives lost." That's according to two software company executives writing in the Daily Telegraph newspaper of London. David Richards, CEO of the British-American software firm WANdisco, and Konstantin Boudnik, the company's vice president of open source development, were referring to the Imperial College of London report March 16 forecasting 2.2 million deaths in the...

    Admitting that a vaccine or drug-based treatment is the only “feasible long-term solution”, British PM Johnson said the UK has accelerated this with “promising” vaccine development programmes and a collaboration between Oxford University and pharma major AstraZeneca was a vital step that could help rapidly advance the manufacture of a Covid-19 vaccine when it is ready. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has warned that a mass vaccine for the novel coronavirus may be over a year away and, in the worst-case scenario, may in fact never be found. In his foreword to the government’s new 50-page guidance on a step by...

    At the end of last week, the Prime Minister was beginning to wonder if the country was taking his advice too much to heart. He asked us to stay at home - and we have. At each daily press conference, medical and scientific advisers talk about the plunge in use of transport and how well rules are being observed. What they don’t say is that this was not quite in their original plan. Government modellers didn’t expect such obedience: the expected workers to carry on and at least a million pupils to be left in school by parents. The deaths...

    While the nations of the world are coping with the pandemic COVID-19, the widespread debate about the origin and reasons for the spread of the virus continue. Unfortunately, the predictions, motivations, fears, and preoccupations of individuals, and the models used for explanation, fall short of what would be desirable. Noticeably, three factors are evident. One is the lack of accuracy of information. Dr. Anthony Fauci has expressed doubts about the low level of COVID-19 cases and deaths reported by China, even after it “revised” and increased its death toll numbers by 50 per cent. A second factor is that some...

    A UK think tank has urged Boris Johnson to pull funding from the World Health Organization (WHO), following President Donald Trump’s example, over the global organization’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic. According to The Express , the head of lifestyle economic affairs at the Institute of Economic Affairs, Christopher Snowdon, hinted at WHO’s lackluster response to the outbreak, peddling a dangerous narrative and nestling up to China at the initial phase. He said: “The coronavirus pandemic has shown that the World Health Organisation needs to be reformed or replaced. “As the organisation’s second-biggest funder, the UK should follow America’s lead....
