I'm sure the patriotic people of the UK will be only to happy to spend a significant sum of money on a second best alternative.
Huawei may have reassessed its ambitions to summit the global smartphone market by 2020 due to political and economic uncertainty between the US and China. The master plan for south-China HQ'd Huawei was to follow up its stellar 2018 and, more recently, calendar Q1 shipments – up 44.5 per cent to 58.43 million units – with …

Not that those in his party who reject the "backstop" will accept any of that. I expect Gove would've been firmly reprimanded for his clarity if the PM or the ERG or one or two others had the mental capacity to see it.
I expect they'll continue to equivocate on Huawei (I wonder if anyone has the guts to say put up or shut up)? And aren't even some of the mainstream press starting to notice the glaring nonsense in the orange Tantrump?
