IT is good news that the government (better late than never) is to ‘phase out’ Huawei technology in our 5G network and the sooner, the better. China is, to all intents and purposes, a rogue state intent upon global domination.

It has already turned a number of African countries into Chinese ‘satellites’ and has its eyes on more in other parts of the world – including South America.

It is a brutally repressive regime – look at what is happening in Hong Kong and its sabre-rattling over Taiwan. Not to mention its ‘ethnic cleansing’ of minorities within its own borders and its ‘lip-service’ to human rights.

Anyone who does business with Beijing would do well to heed those two proverbs: “He who sups with the devil should use a VERY long spoon” and “ Those who lie down with dogs get up with fleas”!
