Yvonne Roberts

Complains at CiF:

Gordon Brown should give the Welsh their bank holiday in 2009, not least to make up for the biased BBC coverage of the Six Nations. As Chris Bryant, the Rhondda Labour MP, told the Western Mail last week: "It\’s the British Broadcasting Corporation not the English Broadcasting Corporation."

Bryant was complaining about the coverage last month where the BBC\’s focus was almost entirely on England\’s win against France. The latter was televised but the Scotland and Wales games were confined to Five Live.

In the comments:
