It will probably puzzle anyone outside the UK but the BBC has come under fire for being being too biased in favour of England in the World Cup.
The attack came from Jack McConnell, First Minister of Scotland, who according to the Scotsman (requires free registration) said on a radio phone-in the BBC seem “to forget from time to time that they are meant to represent the whole of the country, not just one part of it. I hope perhaps they will listen to a bit of pressure and be more reasonable with their coverage.”
McConnell, who heads the devolved Scottish Parliament, had earlier said he would be supporting Trinidad and Tobago. There has also been strong support for T&T in Wales, where one of the Carribean stars plays for Wrexham.
