Q: Hey Aussies, any news re-ABC?

Hi fellow Aussies, does anyone have news about the banning of the ABC Tv station, will it be short term or a permanent situation?

It was one of my high lights in China watching their usual intelligent & amusing programes.

I couldn't believe (then again I could !) the pettiness of this Govt. simply because Huawei got knocked back by the Aust. Govt. in entering the Telecommuncation arena (btw ~ England & Canada did the same) citing security risk.

Anyways..we often been told that the CCP have nothing to do with the 'private' company!! Have you heard a better joke??

Still, I miss the ABC and hoping it comes back online at some point, any recent info would be appreciated. Thanks.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
