Have you ever been to Arbroath? I suspect that may be where a lot of
the original red-necks came from.

NO, they don't carry loaded shotguns; most of the bald-headed,
neckless goons who drive the 4 x 4s (gifties from their Mafia
bosses) probably would find it beyond their intellectual capacity
to work out one end of a shotgun from another.

All one really needs to do is abuse then in Doric Scots, as, first of all,
as I drive a 15 year-old beat-up Citroen "Elation" with the steering
wheel on the wrong side (drove it here from Scotland) they expect
English; secondly, when they reply in Bulgarian, I switch into their
language as a way of proving that there is little difference between
gutter Dundonian and gutter Plovdivian; this really "sets the cat 
amongst the
pigeons" and they generally end up apologising . . .  :)
