Former MI6 chief claims there is 'close linkage' between Huawei and Chinese military
There is "close linkage" between Huawei and the Chinese military, a former head of MI6 has claimed, as he urged the Government to strip the firm from the UK's mobile network. Sir Richard Dearlove insisted that there was a "strategic security reason" for the Government to U-turn on its decision to grant the telecoms giant access to Britain's 5G infastructure. His comments come ahead of a crucial meeting of the National Security Council on Tuesday in which ministers are expected to block the purchase of any new Huawei equipment by the end of this year, with the company removed from 5G by the mid-2020s. Sir Richard said that to remove the Chinese firm would make "good security sense". "I think the relationship between the Chinese state and Huawei is absolutely clear cut," he said. "Huawei is not an ordinary international telecommunications company, it's an intimate part of the Chinese state. "And if you know anything about Chinese military strategy they talk about the fusion of civil and military capabilities and there is a close linkage undoubtedly between the Chinese military capability and Huawei."

The White House Made a List of All the Times Fauci ‘Has Been Wrong' on the Coronavirus
The White House has undertaken behind-the-scenes efforts in recent months to undercut and sideline Dr. Anthony Fauci—even going so far as to compile a list of all the times he "has been wrong on things," according to The Washington Post. After canceling some of his planned TV appearances and keeping him away from the Oval Office, White House officials and President Trump have taken to publicly expressing a loss of confidence in the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and face of the administration's coronavirus task force. The apparent attempts to undermine Fauci come as he continues to counter the president's overly optimistic narrative on the state of the pandemic. Against this backdrop, an unnamed White House official told the Post: "Several White House officials are concerned about the number of times Dr. Fauci has been wrong on things." The official attached a list of incorrect predictions Fauci had made, including his doubts early on that asymptomatic spread would play a large role in transmission and a February assurance that Americans did not need to change their behavior. Like many other public health officials, Fauci said at first that masks were not necessary but recently recommended that they be mandated nationwide. "Dr. Fauci has a good bedside manner with the public but he has been wrong about everything I have ever interacted with him on," Peter Navarro, the president's trade adviser, told the Post in a separate stateme

Filippinos starve as President Duterte vows not to ease the world's longest lockdown
Jeepney buses, with their cheerfully gaudy exteriors and packed-in seats, are a national symbol of the Philippines, a form of public transport known affectionately as 'kings of the road'. But almost all of them have been forced off the roads by possibly the world's longest and strictest coronavirus lockdown. The situation has left many of the drivers destitute and desperate, with fellow citizens stepping in to raise money for them via Facebook groups. Jowel Palaña, 41, a jeepney driver in Manila, told the Telegraph: "Every single day has been a struggle." He has not been able to work as a driver since March 15, when the lockdown began. Instead, he swept the streets in exchange for food from his local district leaders. He was unable to travel to see his wife, three children and their extended family outside the city - or send them any money to survive - for months.
