Nick Xenophon covered in glory again:
Huawei Australia’s new external lawyer, former independent senator Nick Xenophon, has launched an aggressive defence of the company, saying the telecommunications giant was being “destroyed” by “false and totally unsubstantiated claims”.
The company was banned from supplying next-generation 5G mobile internet infrastructure in Australia last August because of security concerns and it announced on Monday it had secured the services of Mr Xenophon’s new firm, Xenophon Davis, to represent it.
“We will defend Huawei Australia against false allegations that will unfairly cause it further economic loss and reputational damage,” Mr Xenophon said in a statement. “There will be no more free kicks against this company.”
If our Nick hasn’t watched General Robert Spalding yet he had better:
Or he won’t be able to spin a new 5G propaganda smoke screen.
He is also a former gold trader and economic commentator at The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, the ABC and Business Spectator. He is the co-author of The Great Crash of 2008 with Ross Garnaut and was the editor of the second Garnaut Climate Change Review.
