It is amazing what people will read into things.  Yesterday I saw different people tweeting that his answers meant he meant all sorts of things.  It seems people won't accept anything at face value.

How is Andrew Marr doing?

I know that he'd suffered a stroke.

He's doing well by the look of things.  He's only been back about a month, and appears to have some weakness down his left side.  I thought he'd come back more gradually, but it seemed like he was doing an out of studio interview (along the lines of the one he did with Andy) one week, then back doing the full show the next.

International people, does this link work for you?

That's journalistic nonsense from this writer in the Mirror.  There is no way you could have judged Andy's opinions on the matter from the Marr interview.  

I doubt that Andy will actually even have a vote, as his home is in Surrey, isn't it?  You can't be on the electoral register in more than one place.  I'm sure he does have an opinion - most Scots do - but he's wise to keep his own counsel here.

In the interview Andy said he'd been playing around the world since the age of 12 and I think he moved away from Dunblane over to Spain when he was 16.  10 years ago.  Yes he is a Scot by birth, and a Brit.  If I were to do something of acclaim right now, I wouldn't go back to Charlton in South-East London to be congratulated.  There must be a dividing line between place of birth and place of residence, but at what stage ??  Bob Hope, Andrew Strauss, Cliff Richard, Bradley Wiggins, Cary Grant and many others.

An interesting point but, do you feel English? I think the land of our birth is fixed in our psyche in an incredibly powerful, and often nostalgic,  way.
I was in South Africa and found a grave yard in a mining town which was full of very young, Welsh people. I was overcome with tears. They were so far away from the green hills of home. I am Welsh so possibly others would not have been effected in the same way?

I know what you mean BBH. I do not think I could feel anything but Scottish. I have done my fair share of travelling and I also have Australian citizenship. But I still cry when I hear the pipes especially the laments which are so soulful and pull at your heart strings. It's in the blood and nothing will change it.

It was a good laugh though Ruthie  lol went quicker than I thought it would.
yes couldn't believe how quickly the time went angie - time just flies when talking about andy and tennis to complete strangers  Whistle

agree andy came over really well again on Andy Marr.  I've heard him give that reply on Scottish independence before and I think it's sensible but it does mean he's sort of committed himself to giving an opinion nearer the time based on the balance of advantage for Scotland.  I'd be surprised if he did come out in favour of independence even though I'm sure he will always be true to his Scottish roots.

   It's not a challenging read. You need some light material. Chill, FFS!

I have to wait until Christmas to get my hands on Andy's signed copy book. I asked my daughter if I could have a look at Andy's autograph, but she would not let me.

About the Scottish vote thing! Andy probably won’t be able to vote if his registered address is in London. Only residents in Scotland, regardless of where they are from i.e. English, Irish, Indian, Polish etc who have a registered address in Scotland can vote for the independence thing.
