Talking Poor wee Scots on the English border!

Look at all these poor Scottish people about to venture into the land of Morris Dancers and Jimmy Tarbuck!

One of them has already taken the plunge, & has already been nabbed by Jimmy Hill droning on about 1966 etc. etc. etc.........

Bloody hell thats just down the road from where I lived.
You need to empty your pockets of all funny money at that border to. How many times did I hear Sorry son we don't accept monoploy money, bloody sassenachs.
I'm sure Jimmy Hill nabbed an ex school mate of mine before he escaped back to BBC Scotland, good ol Gordon Smith. Most Scots said he should have stayed on the wrong side of the border.

The wonderful world of completely missing the point..!

You'd think my avatar would have cunningly given away my nationality, but there's no accounting for dimness!

BTW, Nice pic's Muzza........
