Unfortunately, our website is currently unavailable in most European countries. We are engaged on the issue and committed to looking at options that support our full range of digital offerings to the EU market. We continue to identify technical compliance solutions that will provide all readers with our award-winning journalism.
Strange message ... but there are loopholes via google and iPhone through the AMP protocol. I wonder why newspapers block an entire continent from watching their web site... The site doesn't even need to work according to EU-law ...

GDPR is the reason. They need to work under EU-law if they providing a service to people within the EU.
