Former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull recent memoir clearly shows that there was no "smoking gun" to ban Chinese telecommunications equipment vendor Huawei Technologies from bidding for participation in Australia's 5G networks, the legal firm XenophonDavis says.
Mystery surrounds the fact that Telstra, one of the Australian corporations most concerned about its mentions in the media, did not notice that its name was mentioned by iTWire as a sponsor of the defence lobby group Australian Strategic Policy Institute on at least four occasions [1, 2, 3, 4] even though it had ended its sponsorship of the organisation at the end of June 2019.
In a clear case of the pot calling the kettle black, former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull, who is investing in a security company known as Kasada which has taken money from In-Q-Tel, the investment arm of the CIA, is calling for former Independent senator Nick Xenophon to enter his name on Australia's foreign influence register because he is offering legal advice to Chinese firm Huawei.
This is an unbearably good headline :-)
Great Stuff Sam - I wish this could go out to a larger audience.
5G will save us, and the NBN will have to be redone anyway.
As always, a great article Sam.
I will never forgive him.
