    Downing Street said Theresa May had "lost confidence in his ability to serve" and Penny Mordaunt has been appointed in Williamson’s place.
    The inquiry followed reports over a plan to allow tech firm Huawei limited access to help build the UK's new 5G network.
    Mr Williamson, who has been defence secretary since 2017, "strenuously" denies leaking the information.

Clearly, Williamson is all sorts of an insidious, self-serving Machiavellian wanker; so unfit for public office (just in a trust-worthiness stakes) as to be inadmissible (as most of them are), whom oozes such repugnant darkness as to have been automatically precluded by right minded people to be wholly unworthy of a seat at any table of authority; and such that he was even given a career at all anywhere near government tells you all you need to know about just how defunct, corrupt and disrespectful is the British Political class and their broken, misguided 'system'.

The single fact that Crazy May appointed him to be her Chief Whip and that he had a fucking big tarantula in the Whips Office in order to intimidate others, speaks volumes about her judgement and the kind of wanker he is. If it was me, I'd make sure the tarantula had a nasty accident after it had escaped from up the leg of Herr Williamson's trouser leg. If you get my drift. Anyone who talks about Machiavelli is absolutely the very last person you'd want anywhere near the levers of power in the UK Govt. The police should investigate him, because nobody should be above the law. But I have to say he's innocent until proven guilty However body language NEVER lies. He struts around. One can hear the arrogance in his voice. He needs taking down a peg or three. As a hypnotherapist with some psychology qualifications I'd say that there's months, if not years of work on both of these lunatics But with psychopaths, there is NO cure. They're clever, cunning and NEVER to be trusted. I suspect many of em don't even realise that they are psychopaths. Enter "Richard Kuklinski on YouTube and you'll learn exactly how a psychopath thinks. He's interviewed in prison after being convicted of about 100 murders. He used to work for the Italian Mafia in the USA years ago. You'll be astonished. It's not for the fainthearted. You've been warned. So have a look at that video and then project what you learn onto the members of HM Govt. Kind regards - Chris

If he was actually the source of the leak that proved that Ms Duplicity Incarnate ( Theresa May ), was yet again selling out our country but this time to China as well as the EU ? Then Williamson has actually put country before both himself and his career, proving that she no longer even cares about the UK’s Internet Security, let alone our National Sovereignty either ! In showing just how duplicitous that Snake-Eyed woman can be, in doing what the rest of “ the 5 Eyes “ have warned the UK Govt. about and which they have refused to do ? Which is to refuse to make themselves and their internet systems vulnerable to a “ back door “ Cyber Attack by not allowing Huawei a state owned Chinese company from having anything to do with any of their sensitive internet systems ! So if he was the “ leaker “ ? Then Snake-Eyes has sacked Gavin Williamson just for DOING HIS JOB as Defence Secretary, which is actually to DEFEND this Country from Enemies both Foreign ( China ) and Domestic ( Theresa May ) !

Only idiots will risk sending intellectual property of any kind over 5g after Theresa has handed the passwords to 90% Chinese government owned Huawei. She's doing it to get another 'trade deal', seemingly on even worse terms than her EU 'deal'. Whatever you think of Williamson he's RIGHT to be concerned - you should be too.

Everyone is obsessed with Williamson’s leak and completely missing the real story which is that the Tory party has sold our national security out to the Chinese communist party, and they called Corbyn a Marxist collaborator

We need to take notice here. He denies it, I believe him. May is a proven traitor as per here lies and backtracking on BREXIT. So why are the Government getting into bed with the Chinese? I think that the UK Government and the Chinese are keeping hush as they want to use the 5G rollout to spy on the citizens.

Jeez. So May can't field unknown questions so she asks Tory MPs to ask questions she prepares? This needs to be shat upon fro a great height for all political parties. Parliament should be open debate not theatre. If they can't do that, then charge 5 quid a ticket for PMQ and allow the gallery to throw rotten veg at the idiots.

Not bright but shows how far ruthless Machiavellian tactics can get you. However, the leak, whilst being an opportunistic career move on Williamson's part, *_was_* in the public interest. It didn't put anyone in danger but did reveal a backroom deal the Tories were making with Huawei [controlled directly by the Chinese Communist Party] you may not like it but Williamson did the right thing for all the wrong reasons. He shouldn't be prosecuted.

Is it not true that many of our politicians are promoted way beyond their capabilities. MP’s are often elected because of the apathy of voters that don’t exercise their individual vote and not because anyone thinks they are capable of governing. Time to pull the chain on the lot of them. In the words of the old adage ‘they couldn’t organise a p**s up in a brewery’.

Parliament has more leaks than local allotments. They are all making a nice sideline from our newspaper's. You should ban them from writing columns and taking money from the press. Becoming mini celebrities while they are supposed to be doing the job of government.

​@krumble104His voice is very monotone and emotionless nothing to do with it being nasal . Also after seeing some of his speeches he comes across as a very dark sort of character . Having a tarantula in his office to intimidate people doesn't help matters either . I do however think given he wants their to be a police investigation so as he can clear his name he should be given the opportunity and the Prime Minister should never be blocking such an investigation in the first place .
