Nice Little Plot For Someone?

A friend of mine had her house in Location Location Location. The people loved the house, decided to buy it but wanted a bit more land. 'You could always buy that field,' Kirstie trilled, thereby causing huge offence to my friend's neighbours when the programme was shown who swore never to sell the field to the new buyers regardless of price.
From the landowners point of view, it must be like a stranger suddenly pitching up at their front door and saying, I like your wife/husband/child, here's wads of money, now give them to me. You can see why they get touchy.

What do you call a Scotsman who's had all the generosity squeezed out?
I've know my mother haggle over the price of a pig/bullock for weeks before agreeing to sell (or buy).

a ) You probably didn't have a Cornish passport, so were being charged emmet rates.
b ) You were probably dealing with the Cornish Mafia................
