I quite like 'The Flying Scotsman'  Goes like a train, when in the mood.    'Moodray' is also good.  I suspect his mood dictates his play.

I quite like Moodray too.  Anyway I think maybe we should keep nationality out of this.

'The Ray' makes him sound flashy and intense.

Given the nonsense that still haunts re that 'flippant comment' by Andy, I'd agree, Aileen.  I still can't believe some people hold on to that.  Sad, or what?  Build a bridge and get over it!  Very Happy

Ray is part of his surname, and he is flashy and intense.

Maybe - I'm not fussed. I'm too busy greeting watching the news re Nelson Mandella.  Frown

I missed out the word 'his', although Elly knew what I meant.  Use the word Brit or British by all means but keep clear of Scot or Scottish.  It's what's known as diplomacy, and anyway Andy himself has always said he's proud to be both British and Scottish.


EDIT:  So what about Britray then?

   Diplomacy? More like old-style provincial cringe.  At the height of Empire Lloyd George was the Welsh Wizard, so what's changed?

Aye - but was also known by his detractors as the Welsh Goat!

Yes, but Andy still has his share of detractors, which is why anything related to Scot or Scotland would only add fuel to their fire.  OK so maybe that no longer bothers him but it still bugs some of his fans.

Anyway I object to being classed an old-time provincial cringer, because as far as I'm concerned Andy is the true Flower of Scotland. Smile
