According to the Sun, a company of on-line bookies have taken the completely amazing step of writing to the Queen and Cameron asking them to make Andy Murray an ENGLISHMAN presumably without his permission.
Apparently they are desperate for Murray’s nationality to be changed in case he should win Wimbledon, and it appears that they don't give a stuff whether he wants to change or not
TVBet argues that Wimbledon is English, which of course no one could deny, what with it taking place in a suburb of London, the capital of England. They appear to think that we have our own sports like tossing the caber, which again, no one would deny.
They think that it wouldn't be right for a Scot to win the tournament.
This is quite odd, because as far as I'm aware the last time an Englishman actually won it, most of them weren't even born, given that it was 1936.
“It’s as English as strawberries and cream" said a spokesman for the company, forgetting or not knowing that the strawberries for Wimbledon come from the Carse of Gowrie, in Scotland.
We have to assume that TVBet.co.uk are pulling our legs, but you really never know, specially not with The Sun.
Congratulations, Andy: Good result (6-4 6-7 6-3 6-7 6-2)
