Definition of "National"?

*Rant warning, and yes, this may play to the stereotype of Scots, but it’s frustrating!*

Methinks someone at the BBC needs to check their facts a little more carefully about the National Year of Reading.
In this case, “National” means the nations of England and Wales, not Scotland or Northern Ireland…so there’s no “NYR” events or contacts here, we’re apparently not taking part in it, it is not a UK wide event. Any attempt to find a book group, volunteer, or be otherwise involved via their website in anything other than England and Wales would come to a dead end.
Please, please, can someone at the BBC actually check facts before they declare something’s UK wide when it’s not?

*rant over*
