    A BBC UK News?

    The BBC Trust is undertaking a review of its Network News in response to complaints that it is not reflecting devolution.

    What would a UK news bulletin look like? Well today, BBC Breakfast is leading on Ed Balls' Children's Plan. Now, they did manage to mention that it applied in England only. But a UK bulletin would have scoured the UK BBC newsrooms, perhaps adding in lines relevant to Wales, such as this one, or the dyslexia tests at 6 story running on Radio Wales this morning but not on BBC Online, and possibly this from BBC Scotland.

    It's a question of culture - London dominates, the metropolitan mind-set dominates.
