How to easily access BBC News from China

There's an extraordinarily easy way to read BBC News from within China, at least for now, says Graham Webster. You just need a different URL.

I mentioned this in my last post, but it deserves its own: there's an extraordinarily easy way to read BBC News from within China. All you need to do is use this URL: newsvote.bbc.co.uk.

As far as I can tell, this is the same site as news.bbc.co.uk, which is blocked in the mainland.

I don't know how long this has been around, but I caught it in the comments on The Peking Duck. Thanks, Liuzhou Laowai! Enjoy your pithy BBC write-ups, everyone!
