The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent virus threat and have therefore raised their threat level from “Miffed” to “Peeved”.

The Scots raised their threat level from “Pissed Off” to “Let’s Get the Bastard.” They don’t have any other level. Which is why they have been used in the front lines of the British Army for over 300 years,
