Thankfully his PR team persuaded him to adopt a British stance to increase his earning potential

Have been very impressed that he hasn't sought to ride the hype that he was in the Dunblane school as a kid, when that bloke started shooting people dead. He deserves a massive amount of respect for that.
His family live in Scotland, he supports tennis camps in Scotland, he owns a successful luxury hotel in Scotland, he got most DC matches played in Scotland, why should he not be proudly Scottish and have a view on independence? And while he may live around Wimbledon, his early training was in Spain and once he turned pro the vast majority of his off season training has been in Miami.
