The Chinese regulator says their internet is wide open but web users are having trouble accessing the ABC site.

Cairns News has asked the Chinese regulator if it had been viewing current affairs shows such as Q&A.

Q&A compere Tony Jones should be appreciated by China because of his strong Marxist ideology

We are perplexed why China would not be happy with Q&A compere Tony Jones, an unabashed communist sympathiser whose views are compatible with China’s governing regime.

Although China has been scathing of the federal government’s decision to keep Chinese tech companies from competing in the 5G network roll out, a government spokesman said this was not the reason for blocking the ABC.

Maybe the regime has seen to many episodes of Q&A after all?
