  • Why Johnson looks set to allow Huawei into 5G - but why that will complicate relations with Trump even more Link

    Brandon Lewis, the security minister, is something of a genius at winsomely saying next to nothing. Even so I emerged from my interview with him on my show last night persuaded that the National Security Council and the Prime Minister would next week give the go ahead to the controversial use of Huawei kit in the roll out of superfast 5G mobile broadband.

    It was something about the way he said that he utterly respected the advice of the security services and would take very seriously the evidence provided by BT and Vodafone.

    Here is why this matters.

    Robert Peston Wed 22 Jan 2020 11:34

    In case you were in any doubt, the prime minister and his chief aide, Dominic Cummings, more than give a damn about who runs the BBC - and intend to have a significant influence over the appointment of a new director general.

    The current chairman, David Clementi, showed acute political sensitivity in persuading Tony Hall to stand down as Director General earlier than he would otherwise have done.

    The point is that Clementi's own term of office ends in just over a year. And had Hall stayed in post longer than that, Johnson and Cummings would have selected a new chair to replace Clementi with the express purpose of ensuring that Hall's successor would not be hostile to their ambitions for wholesale reform of how the BBC is funded and what it does (under the rules, the government chooses the BBC chair, the BBC board chooses the DG).

    So Clementi appears to have won a tactical battle over Downing Street, by taking control of the process to replace...
