Huawei savaged by Brit code review board over pisspoor dev practices

No, Huawei are really crappy at security and thus make people worried. That's why we should start doing this level of code review for other suppliers as well. Just because it is possible (and likely, I admit that) that other suppliers did the same kind of thing doesn't mean Huawei is great. Without that review, you cannot make a statement like "not noticeably crappier than many other suppliers", just like you couldn't make the statement "infinitely worse than all other mainstream suppliers". You lack the evidence, and have made a completely unfounded statement. In parallel, there are still concerns about links to Chinese intelligence, which this review has not concerned. The code review has not announced the existence of these threats, nor has it announced the completion of the search.
