Trump This

So let me get this straight. Donald Trump, who is despoiling with a golf course and general millionaires' playpen an area which was supposed to be protected because of its wildlife and its natural beauty, is complaining that a wind farm is "environmentally irresponsible"? Because it will be visible from his eyesore?

In the letter to Mr Salmond, he said: "Unfortunately, instead of celebrating the start of something valuable and beautiful for Scotland, this ugly cloud is hanging over the future of the great Scottish coastline.

Mr Trump said he had been "repeatedly promised" that wind farms would not be "destroying and distorting Aberdeen's magnificent coastline".

Of course that would upset him: that's his job.

Still, it's not all doom and gloom. If the wind farm is built, as it undoubtedly will be,

"...you should ask yourself if any other international developer would ever risk investing in Scotland after my experience and all the promises that were made to me."

Well, Donald, you should ask yourself whether Scotland wants any more international developers like you bribing their way around the planning restrictions and concreting over one of Europe's most beautiful countries. Here's a hint: the answer's not "Yes".
