Chris Hoy called a traitor to Scotland by nationalists - Telegraph Seems that some nationalists have taken exception to Sir Chris Hoy backing the No vote. Like a vast majority of Scottish athletes and sportsman, Sir Chis found the facilities in Scotland wanting, so he nipped across the border to train in an environment and facility that allowed him to reach his full potential. Some nationalists have even suggested that because he was privately educated (in Scotland), he cannot represent the feelings of "ordinary Scots". I am pretty sure if he nipped across to the US to live and train, no one would have an issue, but some nationalists think that living and training in England and saying the UK is better together makes him a traitor. Tip of the iceberg or is this rhetoric going to escalate as we get every closer to "the day"?
