‘The economics and culture of Murray’s Wimbledon triumph’ | A. Heath- City A.M.

Some argue that yesterday’s events at Wimbledon will be good for the United Kingdom because Murray is a Scot. The problem with this argument is that, if anything, while it might make the English slightly more pro-union (they have become far less so in recent years) it might also make the Scots slightly more supportive of independence, and it is they who are being asked to vote in next year’s referendum. The truth is that Murray’s astonishing three set spectacular is unlikely to make much of a difference in that debate, which is dominated by many far more significant factors. The Scots will probably vote to remain part of the UK, but that will have nothing to do with Wimbledon.
