English term or phrase:egged on
What’s got into the Scots? You might think they would be feeling rather self-confident these days, since not only do they now have their own parliament and executive, but they also seem to run the rest of the United Kingdom. Tony Blair (prime minister), Gordon Brown (chancellor), Helen Liddell (Scotland), Robin Cook (leader of the House of Commons), Derry Irvine (Lord Chancellor) and John Reid (Northern Ireland) are all Scots. Even so, the Scots are not happy.
The problem, apparently, is the English. A rising sense of nationalism has been accompanied in recent years by a growing feeling of antipathy to the neighbours south of the border. During the World Cup, many Scots, egged on by their biggest-selling paper (при поддержке своей самой ходовой газеты “Дейли рекорд”?), the Daily Record, cheered all England’s opponents to the echo. More sinisterly, incidents of bullying English children at school rose sharply, with ChildLine Scotland reporting a sudden increase in calls from despairing English children.
