I have just been completing an questionnaire on YouGov which asked me wher I lived. I scrolled down the list several times assuming I had missed reading East Anglia. However, I was wrong. According to YouGov, East Anglia does not exist, instead presumably I was supposed to click on "South East" (which I assume to be Essex, Kent, East Sussex, etc) or even the East Midlands.
Why do people assume the missing out East Anglia is okay. Would they miss out Scotland or London from a list like this ? Of course not.
The BBC are just as bad. In their programme "The Great British Menu" a few months ago they insisted on making chefs from Norfolk compete in the "Central" region against chefs from Staffordshire. Now explain that one to me !
