The BBC has a national orchestra for Wales (population 3.1 million) and Scotland (population 5.3 million), but no national orchestra for England (population 53 million).

Even Northern Ireland (population 1.9 million) had a BBC Northern Ireland Light Orchestra which became the Ulster Orchestra, see the following links:
This is just one of numerous areas in which the BBC studiously discriminates against England and the English as a nation in her own right. Just wait and see how de-Anglicized ‘The Last Night of the Proms’ is made this year!
