I tried to explain this to my relatives, but they did not get it. Mind you they do not get any of it; UK, Britain, England, Scotland, Wales, NI; their preferred word is London for it all.

I hear that, the closest I can get here is if a Kiwi makes good and they are an adopted Australian.

Federer 2-1 in sets up, Murray firmly Scottish

That's nothing, when I lived in Oz, whenever I mentioned footy to any Aussies they automatically assumed as I was English I must support Man U (as if), when I explained I was a Spurs fan, 99% of them had never heard of Tottenham Hotspur......absolutely unacceptable

Looking injured now ... I am really heading for bed now, the repeated sight of the chinless in-bred wonders in the crowd is starting to annoy me
