LONDON (Reuters) - A senior British minister on Wednesday denied that U.S. President Donald Trump was responsible for Britain’s 5G ban on Huawei, saying the decision was a considered one despite attempts by some individuals to claim credit.

 

Britain announced on Tuesday it would purge Huawei equipment from 5G by the end of 2027, with Trump saying hours later that: “We convinced many countries, many countries, I did this myself for the most part, not to use Huawei, because we think it is an unsafe security risk, it’s a big security risk.”

 

Asked about the remark, British Health Secretary Matt Hancock told Sky News: “Well we all know Donald Trump don’t we.”

 

“All sorts of people can try to claim credit for the decision but this was based on a technical assessment by the National Cyber Security Centre about how we could have the highest quality 5G systems in the future,” he said.

and we all know Matt Hancock, health minister, liar and now apparently, a national security advisor.

 

Will be remembered for coining the phrase,

”we’re following the science “ when corvid19 deaths went out of control in England trying to deflect criticism.

 

Suggested premier league footballers took a pay cut to help the NHS, declined taking one himself. 

 

Now he thinks, I’ll have a go at Trump, that might make me more popular.

unwise move by the minister,

no "win" in upsetting Trump now that UK is seeking to cut a trade deal with Trumpland and the Trumpers

This could get interesting.  DT is slipping.  He doesn't realize that his clout in the US, with the Senate and Justice Department in his pocket, does nothing for him on the international stage.  But with Bannon in both his and BoJo's ear we're sure to have some good reality show moments.  Johnson can keep on about chickens and DT can do his dishwashers and toilets routine, one of my favorites: after all, these are the important things.
