In English nationalist circles, the view that the BBC is hideously anti-English is widespread. The ingrained practice of referring to British rather than English whenever and where ever possible, from the avoidance of referring to the English Democrats by name and marginalizing of the Party, the practice of ensuring a Scottish presence in any discussion about England and the English, to the exclusion of any English panel members of “Question Time” and “Any Questions?” programmes recorded in Scotland before Scottish audiences.
Further evidence of the English having been discriminated against is to be found in David Stenhouse’s book “ON THE MAKE, How the Scots took over London“. Indeed, Mr Stenhouse (also a Scot) was engaged by BBC Radio Four to present a series of programmes about Scottish nationalism.
There is also the book by Iain Martin (yet another Scot) who writes for the Sunday Times, called “Making It Happen” about the antics of the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) and its role in precipitating the financial crisis in 2008. It should be noted that the RBS board was run by Scots who excluded the English until there were clear signs of liquidity problems. It should also be remembered that both the British Prime Minister and Chancellor of the Exchequer were also Scots in a Scots dominated British Government from 1997 to 2010, the Chairman of the Commons Select Committee on Finance was a Scot, John McFall (now Lord McFall, of course!) and the Chairman of the relatively new but now defunct Financial Services Authority from 2003 until the Lehmann Bros’ collapse in 2008 was Sir Callum McCarthy, another Scot!
Scottish interests are further served by a Secretary of State for Scotland invariably a Scot and a Scottish Affairs Committee all for a nation of merely 5.3 million, the population of any of England’s ‘regions’!
The latest of the dubious indulgences funded by the shabby Labour Government with public funds is now forced into the open, ironically by the freedom of information legislation which Blair had felt constrained to introduce as a consequence of the longstanding pressure for reform created in left-wing circles by such groups as Charter 88! Of course the chief, most numerous beneficiaries of this plot are the people of England the English and it is no surprise to many of us that the BBC [the dear old Beeb, as it likes to portray itself!] was ‘in the thick of it’!

Roll on the day when there is an English Parliament objectively and properly served by an EBC.
