Charles becomes King of England and the first thing he does is change the boundary between England and Scotland. He sends out his trusted surveyor who finds a house that actually sits right on top of the new borderline.
It belongs to Mrs MacTavish, who has lived in Scotland all of her life, but now she has the choice whether to have the border line changed ever so slightly so she can officially live in Scotland or England.
The surveyor thinks, no choice, really. Here is Mrs MacTavish in her tartan skirt listening to Rod Stewart whilst cooking haggis on the stove beneath a giant photo of the Glasgow Rangers.
He says to her: “Well, Mrs MacTavish, would you like me to change the border to run in front of your house so you live in England, or at the back of your house so you are still living in Scotland?”
Without hesitation, Mrs MacTavish says: “Oh, I’d like to live in England.”
The surveyor is flabbergasted. “But Mrs MacTavish, you are as Scottish as they come; why on earth would you want to live in England?”
She says: “Oh, I couldn’t stand another Scottish winter.”
