Recognition for Chess in Scotland
Without turning this into a political debate, I have spoken to ministers about this. The main issue is that it would really need to change in the whole of the UK. Depending how the vote goes in 2014 it may be easier for us to be recognised as a sport as it could be a single government we would have to deal with.

I firmly believe that we should take the Ioc ruling, that chess is indeed a sport. I already have the backing of Fide and the Ecu for attempting the change.
