Well the concept is flawed. It doesn't actually get very cold in Scotland, and it's often colder in parts of England, and Scots are good at wrapping up in winter - because of the winds not particularly because of the temperature. So, the 'concept' is flawed, very flawed, utter nonsense really.

I don't think it matters if it's Farenheit or Celsius, it made me laugh too Becky.

My son-in-law obviously has a strong constitution. He's from Inverness and he won't be supporting England!
