I'm in Beijing Hemsell and it seems deliberate to me - the attempt to get Google fails in the same way as attempts to access BBC. I can get on the IP address, but that may only be matter of time - i was using [188.8.131.52...] for a few days but that seems to have been found and blocked now too. i have a few other workarounds that i won't discuss here as the official net guardians probably read this too.
You'll never go bust over estimating the paranoia and pettiness of the Chinese security services
