    BBC's website is being blocked across China

    In view of the ongoing protests in Hong Kong (not arguing about of its merits or demerits), and the recently concluded Molotov-cocktail party in Kiev, one cannot blame PRC from doing what it deems is in the national interests. No one needs a sniper attack and people getting killed for the sake of "democracy" and "freedom of speech."

    Here is the most ridiculous part of the article (BBC beating its own drum):
    Source: BBC News - BBC's website is being blocked across China

    just tried, bbc is not accessible.

    I think the reason for the blackout is quite clear, bbc knows it better than anyone.

    in fact, im habituated to see BBC's advertisement showing, "if food prices increases because of high demands from China, then US's/Western people will buy/import less products from China and this way China's growth rate may then come down."
    WE SEE THE BIGGER PICTURE - BBC

    :rofl: :tsk:

    There was a time when I used to watch BBC regularly as it was much more neutral than CNN, well those days are long gone and the BBC has become little more than a government mouthpiece now. Good riddance to bad rubbish I'd say.
