The British Prime Minister May have to reshuffle her Cabinet again. This time, it meets the Minister of defence, Mr Williamson, is said to have given information from a confidential meeting to the press.
Gavin Williamson was only one and a half years, the Minister of defense. Prime Minister Theresa May had made him in November of 2017, to succeed Michael Fallon, who had stumbled over his behaviour towards women.
Williamson stumbled now over a different affair: The "Daily Telegraph" had reported a week ago, details of a meeting of a secret meeting of the National security Council, including the decision that the Chinese mobile vendor Huawei on the Development of the UK's 5G network even if not on a safety-related core of the network could participate.
The newspaper had reported, as the Cabinet is at loggerheads with this decision had shown that the US government had protested against the participation of the Chinese in the Expansion of the British network and the consequences for the cooperation of the security services threatened.

Williamson had denied that he was the source of the indiscretion. "I've never worn anything from the National security Council to the outside world, nor would I ever do that," he said on Tuesday the BBC. However, according to an internal investigation of the affair, the Prime Minister accused him of misconduct, and stated that it had lost confidence in Williamson.
There is overwhelming evidence that he was the source for the report in the newspaper, so May write in your Dismissal of Williamson. Previously, he had refused to resign voluntarily. This would count as a confession, wrote Willamson in a letter to May, he posted on Twitter. So May had to fire the Minister-in-command.criticism of his own party
Mays decision has not been included in your party. The conservative Chairman of the defence Committee in the house of Commons, Julian Lewis, criticized the expulsion. "This is a loss," he said. "I think, for example, about how Gavin successfully against the reduction of defence expenditure has fought. In the end, he had even more in his budget. He was good for the defense."
at the same time, Lewis turned sharply against the participation of Huawei in the Development of a UK mobile network. "If Gavin really should be the source, probably because he is as concerned as I about the insane idea that the next Generation of our mobile radio network of a company to build, which is controlled by the Chinese Communists."
Williamson had apparatus because of its rugged way many opponents in the government. His political friends to spread the Version that it was like a conspiracy of this opponent to the victim.
