"And let them come!"

Scots take control of English river

The simmering row over Scotland's influence on English affairs took a new twist yesterday, with the claim that the Scottish Parliament is set to extend its powers across the Border into Northumberland and territories once ravaged by the Border reivers. The Scotsman

"And let them come!" fierce Dacre cried;
"For soon yon crest, my father's pride,
That swept the shores of Judah's sea,
And wav'd in gales of Galilee,
From Branksome's highest towers display'd,
Shall mock the rescue's lingering aid!--
Level each harquebuss on row;
Draw, merry archers, draw the bow;
Up, bill-men, to the walls, and cry,
Dacre for England, win or die!"

Verse XXIX The Lay of the Last Minstrel by Walter Scott
