Roving Spotlight 21 Dec '21: Dodgy Huawei, Dodgy Economy & Dodgy US, China, Russia, Ukraine, Taiwan

Roving Spotlight 21 Dec '21: Dodgy Huawei, Dodgy Economy & Dodgy US, China, Russia, Ukraine, Taiwan

Huawei, up to no good with their phones - but to be fair, didn't the US security agencies lean on their telecommunication providers? ... and it doesn't seem Huawei went along willingly.

Mark Gibbons, on wage growth and its share of GDP, dodgy privatisations, dodgy economics, dodgy policy ( oh ... GDP ... isn't that a dodgy measure we love to criticise ... oh, never mind ).

John Hallam from People for Nuclear Disarmament. The US sabre-rattling is bringing China and Russia closer together. But what about those historical "border incidents"? Written out of history? Wonder if we'll see joint military exercises ... Then there's the current flashpoints around the Ukraine and Taiwan. But, the world seems just as close, if not closer, compared to when notional communists in the Kremlin ran the USSR.

Music including Sweet, Ben Frost and Mike Oldfield.

Some approximate times:

12m Huawei
30m 50s Economics
1h 16m Nuclear War & Global Politics
