Defending England on the BBC

I was invited onto BBC Radio WM today to "defend England" against accusations that the English are arrogant and think they're the centre of the world.

I have campaigned for the creation of an English Parliament for many years and although there is an institutional bias against England and all things English in the BBC I've been on various BBC radio shows (including BBC Scotland) talking about devolution and English identity and culture.  BBC Radio Five Live also invited me on this morning but they messed me around and didn't call back so I went to McDonalds instead.  I guess I must be doing something right if the BBC are phoning me up asking me to do interviews!
