Why why Huawei do you waste your time fighting this?

In my last contract my gross day rate over a year was about £120,000 with no holiday pay, sick pay pension and I paid employer NI. I went permanent for £85,000 per year, 10% bonus, 5% profit share, 9% employer pension contribution, private healthcare, holiday pay and sick pay. To say contractors get paid double a permie is nonsense. I'm better off permanent with the same company I was at for two years as a contractor.
European governments are so shortsighted. With no warning the internet of things could come grinding to a halt at the behest of the Chinese. Across the land remotely controlled cat scratchers will cease to function properly and could, in a fully kitted out house, take part in the preparation of a wholly unacceptable meal involving my poor kitty in a tragically central role.
"Labour literally don't understand that issuing bonds IS printing money"
They also don't realise that a publicly traded company like BT would have no interest in holding tens of billions of pounds in gilts. If even 20% of labour issued commie bonds were converted to useable cash the bond markets would be flooded to devastating effect. Of course, Labour would avoid that horror by nationalising companies with instruments which are not openly tradeable effectively just stealing corporate assets.
It is to limit the damage done by forgers overcoming security vulnerabilities in passports. As time progresses new printing technologies and RFID technology make newer passports much more difficult to forge. By only allowing unexpired passports you guarantee that proof of ID is accepted only using documents less than 10 years old.
It's all a pathetic game by the US government. Over twenty years ago I worked for two US equipment and software providers putting intercept equipment in Belgacom's infrastructure on behalf of US and UK authorities. We were collecting metadata before people knew what it was to DLT tape. The Germans were at, too. When Schengen came along the Schengen database people hired the same companies to do the same. Christ GCHQ can't walk by an undersea cable without bugging it. The US knows end to end encryption is the proper response and this ban the Chinese crap is nonsense.
The UK system is a much more capable system (well, hopefully) than the system being used in parts of Austria. It requires improvements to the EE infrastructure, bespoke handsets from Samsung and software services from Motorola. On paper it is very advanced and it will have hardly any reliance on drop in temporary infrastructure. The UK system has to operate 12 miles offshore.
