My comment is meant in a light hearted fashion, however...

It always has amazed me the hypocrisy of some people who will only accept a sportsman as one of theirs if they are winning. Andy Murray is a good example of this. If he loses he is "Scottish -  nothing to do with us". Now that he has won he is "one of us, British through and through".

 

Well done Scotland for producing a fine athlete welldone smile

wave  Hate to agree, but it is so noticeable to us Scots when this happens.  I like to think it is just a slip of the tongue and that everyone is proud of him whether he loses or wins!!  wink

You are right, both of you, it has been noticeable and it's deplorable - he's British, for goodness sake, it encompasses us all.  Somebody on Facebook posted yesterday saying "well done Andy, you are now officially British" - I like to think it was said tongue in cheekponder

He's a true champion, and a fine athlete/sportsman - and he has given these islands an incredible lifting of spirits - what more could the man do?

Well Done, Andy ! ok   ok   ok   Smiley

Scottish, Cornish, Welsh, English, Northern Irish. Nothing wrong with putting your home country first ok

But we are all British.
