Default Can you access blogspot.com sites?

My access to all blogspot.com sites seems to be blocked (e.g., http://booksearch.blogspot.com/).

Does anybody else based in Dubai have the same problem?

Thanks for that. But I have not been able to access gulf news on line for more than a month. Keep getting the following reply:

Safari can’t open the page “http://www.gulfnews.com/” because it could not connect to the server “www.gulfnews.com”.

Can you access gulf news online?

Sorry for wasting your time.

There is another blogspot.com access thread in the Middle East forum (i.e., not the sandpit). Others having the same problem!
