Mary Macleod today nailed her colours to the mast ahead of next summer's Rugby World Cup.
The Brentford & Isleworth MP said she would be supporting England at the tournament, despite her largely Scottish upbringing.
"I may have a funny name and speak with a funny accent but I've lived in London for most of my life and feel very much a Londoner, which is why I'll be supporting England next summer," she told getwestlondon.
Ms Macleod was born at St Thomas' Hospital, across the Thames from the Houses of Parliament, but lived in Scotland from the age of three until she moved to London after graduating from the University of Glasgow in 1990.
She has already spoken of her opposition to Scottish independence ahead of the referendum due to take place in September.
The event was held to let people know how they might be affected by the tournament, from the opportunity for free tickets to the potential impact on traffic and public transport.
"I think it's brilliant to have the Rugby World Cup on our doorstep. It's great opportunity to get more people - especially younger people - playing rugby," added Ms Macleod.
