Williamson sacked in Huawei scandal

Gavin Williamson, the defence secretary, has been sacked by Theresa May and replaced by Penny Mordaunt. He is accused of having leaked information from the National Security Council, concerning Huawei’s potential involvement in a future 5G network. It was discovered he had talked to a Telegraph editor after the meeting but adamantly denied involvement in the leak. Some MPs, especially from opposition parties, have called for a criminal investigation under the Official Secrets Act, however the PM has announced that this won’t happen.

    Is this author 14 years old with absolutely zero knowledge on music? Has to be. Two out of three songs are irrelevant. Both by shitty bands. Who paid for this?…

    Wonderful article! Very insightful and brilliantly communicated. I wasn't aware of this issue before, but this article has really brought it to light for me. Thank you very much!
