I knew I had been in Scotland too long when I, who never missed a match at Cardiff Arms Park between 1946 and 1956, found myself cheering Glasgow Warriors when they were playing Cardiff Blues!

He always looks as though he's sucked a lemon - not an ounce of personality in sight, and morose with it.

To quote a very early "The Bill" script (Sgt Twentyman, remember him?) - "He's a Celt, he's got built in misery."!

I think you are definately Scottish only a Scot would say "my big sister" most of the lesser nations would say my older sister.

As to the comments regarding Andy Murray well jealousy is never a pleasant trait.

It's quite interesting for me sometimes. I am a Scot whose father was transferred to England in 1951, and have lived down here ever since.

Celtic were the first British team to win the European Cup, but Man U were the first English club to do so. The 2002 Winter Olympic curling team were all Scots representing Britain, but won the Gold Medal for England - as every one told me in the office I worked in at that time. And I have no doubt that quite a lot of people will suddenly decide that Andy is the first 'English' Grand Slam winner for 74 years should he win in Melbourne!! I have noticed this for some time - until a Scot is successful he's a Scot or sometimes British but after some success he morphs into an Englishman! Funny that!!

"He always looks as though he's sucked a lemon....."

And I thought the minority British subjects always stuck together :-)
