Article Renamed From East England

Renamed this article from East England to East Anglia.

East Anglia is a more specific region than East England, and the page was clearly talking about East Anglia, not East England (which would include eg. Kent, Lincolnshire, Yorkshire and Northumberland. Chris j wood 16:32, 1 Jul 2004 (EDT)

Trouble is, "East Anglia" (government "economic regions" aside) does not traditionally include Bedfordhire and Hertfordshire (some would say that East Anglia is really only Norfolk and Suffolk, though most would nowadays admit Cambridgeshire and Essex too). What the BBC calls "The Eastern Counties" encompasses the counties included here (plus Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire, though I think that has more to do with transmitter coverage than anything else) -- might that not be a better name for the present article? -- Picapica 14:37, 3 Oct 2004 (EDT)
