Western democracies, especially the United States, just heaved a huge sigh of relief after getting word that United Kingdom PM Boris Johnson is dropping the controversial Chinese tech company, Huawei, as the nation's provider of 5G infrastructure.

UK moves to drop Huawei as 5G vendor China transparency https://t.co/49H70xvFeW
Canada is the single holdout in the 5-Eyes intel network not to rule out Huawei 5G. @JustinTrudeau, say no to that lying dictatorship...we need intel trade with the US, UK, NZ, & Aus more than the shit we get from China. What’s Xi got on you? Haven’t they caused enough trouble?— ℙ𝕖𝕥𝕖𝕣 𝕊𝕙𝕦𝕣𝕞𝕒𝕟 (@shurmanator) April 18, 2020
If you loved how honest and transparent China was with their virus pandemic, you'll like how honest and transparent they are with Huawei making your country's 5G system.— Ezra Levant 🇨🇳🦠 (@ezralevant) April 17, 2020
