Andy has sensibly kept well away from the centre of referendum issues.    Caption to pic of Andy with Leon Smith quite amusing....... Leon Smith may not be able to select Andy.     Leon may not be captain.
Yes, but part of the title refers to the 2015 Davis Cup, which won't be an issue, something the writer appears to be unaware of, although I don't think he's alone in thinking that independence will start on 19 Sept if the vote goes that way, since it seems to me that a lot of English people (those living outside Scotland that is) have that belief, and possibly some Welsh and N. Irish as well.

absolutely, if there is a Yes vote, Independence would not commence until at least end March 2016. So Scotland would still be part of the UK during all of 2015.

Indeed the problem won't be for 2015 in the event of a Yes vote but I was wondering how Leon would be eligible to be captain if Andy isn't eligible to play.

I got the impression that it would be Andy's choice as to whether he opted to play for Scotland in the future should the vote go that way. So presumably the same applied to Leon, if he lives in England?  I think once he has opted though, there's no going back. That certainly seems to be the case for the Olympics.

Yes, Andy and Leon would be in the same boat.    My point is that the writer seemed to think Leon would be GB captain but "may not be able to select Andy for his team".

I don't think there are any rules on which country the captain is from.  Personally, I think they'll stick with a British Davis Cup team for the time being at least.  Let's face it, Britain struggles as it is, never mind splitting the talent.

Scottish tennis won't want to miss out on all of that lovely Wimbledon money, and the rest of the UK won't want to miss out on their best player in generations.

If Ireland can stick with a joint rugby team, it shouldn't be that hard for Britain to stick with a joint tennis team.

Good point Sparkle!  Also I agree with the rest of your post, and certainly as far as cricket goes, not that I'm a follower, but some Scots do play at English county level as well as for the national team, and in fact one Scot, Mike Denness, was once its captain.  The curiosity here as that some of these players also play for the fledgling Scottish national team as well as representing Scotland in other sports.

The British Lions Rugby Team includes the Republic of Ireland players (if they are good enough)eg. Brian O'Driscoll. So why not keep the British Davis Cup Team as now.

Oh dear... http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/510694/Better-service-is-needed-at-Andy-Murray-s-hotel-say-inspectors

Still, it sounds like it was a really minor fault that they took care of straightaway.

This smacks of the business with the cottages.  Andy may own the hotel but he does not run it.  Anything to bring Andy into disrepute.  This may well have happened but how many other hotels who fail a check are splashed all over the papers.

Environmental health officers are really pernickity where handwash sinks are concerned. If someone had used the last handtowel next to it seconds b4 they turned up and not replenished it this would be enough to merit a fail.  Still shouldn't have  happened though.

It's the kind of thing that trips up a lot of new businesses, but nothing that will be keeping the Environmental Health Officers up at night.  Being given improvements isn't that unusual, but obviously they are there for a reason, and it's good to get it right.  Sadly, it's not unusual for such improvement notices to make the papers if it's premises owned by someone in the public eye.

My Dad ran a bakery/catering business for many years ago, so it doesn't matter whether the business is new or not, because these health officials, provided they're doing the job properly, will pick up on the smallest flaw, and let's face it, even the most experienced businesses can sometimes slip up a little.  After all the managers/owners can't be expected to be everywhere at once.  However this seems pretty minor and possibly not a fault that was easy to detect either unless closely inspected.

So good for the Express to go making a song and dance about a triviality just because a celebrity happens to own the hotel! Rolling Eyes

And splashed all over the media it certainly is!  How pathetic. Rolling Eyes
