Британского министра обороны уволили за планы втянуть страну в военный конфликт, - Times

The real reasons for the dismissal of the Minister of defence of great Britain Gavin Williamson is that he did privately unpleasant statements about the health of Prime Minister Theresa may and wanted to draw British troops into military action abroad.

This was reported by the newspaper The Sunday Times, citing sources in the government and the leadership of the Conservative party.

It is noted that the irritation may have caused the words of the head of the Ministry of defense stating that her diabetes makes her not ready to fulfill the Prime Minister’s functions and it should not continue to remain in office. These thoughts in mind, Williamson shared with the colleagues in the Conservative party (although the Minister denies this fact).

The publication also notes that the trust may towards Williamson was undermined even earlier, when the defense Minister was began to strive to send British troops abroad, where they would take a direct part in hostilities. When the Prime Minister rejected the initiative Williamson about sending ships of the Royal Navy in the disputed territories in the South China sea, the head of the defense Ministry “is scrawled on an official document swearing to the Prime Minister”.

The dismissal of the Minister

May Wednesday, may 1, Williamson resigned in connection with loss of trust. The dismissal of the Minister came after he refused to leave his post at his own request. The ex-Minister insisted on his innocence.

The reason for the dismissal was an internal investigation of the story about leaked information from the meeting of the security Council, which, with the support of Mei, it was decided to allow the Chinese Corporation Huawei to the creation of non-key technologies, a British mobile network 5G.

Information about the secret meeting was in the newspaper The Daily Telegraph. After the publication of the entire country has learned that disagreement with the position of the Prime Minister and shared the results of a meeting of the security Council expressed four members of the British government: interior Minister Sajid Javid, the Minister of foreign Affairs Jeremy hunt, Williamson and the then Minister for international development penny Mordaunt, which later changed Williamson at the head of the defense Department.
