Mother’s turn to pick the subject for debate today and she elected to discuss concerns over Huawei and their domination of 5G technology…..!!

Many of my followers will remember my weekly reports of lunch with mother (now aged 91), but she has been in a care home these past 12 months so lunching out, sadly, doesn’t happen.

However, both she and I watched the BBC Panorama programme last night and she expressed her concerns that Huawei, a huge Chinese company operating at the leading edge of 5G technology, could hold the rest of the world, to ransom, by hacking into its own systems that control our traffic, aircraft, electrical supply and other infrastructure not to mention our internet and telephone systems.

Although there is no suggestion the Chinese want to do this at the moment, the fact is all Chinese companies are committed to helping their government if they demand it.

Mother then said:

But part of their technology is badly built isn’t it…..?”

Indeed their security is flaky so I used the analogy that it was like having a high powered Mustang with Ford Taurus brakes….well I didn’t exactly use that example because I translated it into the “American” language the English equivalent might be a Range Rover Vogue with Land Rover Defender brakes!!

Stimulating conversation!
