I was appalled by this awful arrogant man and his outrageous planning application to destroy the integrity and wildness of the Aberdeenshire sand dunes. What is the point of designating an area a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) if someone with more money than sense is then allowed to build on it? The whole idea is beyond crazy, and it should have been made clear to Trump at the outset that his egotistical plan was totally unacceptable. If the planning authorities and government in Scotland permit Trump's development they should hang their heads in shame for allowing such gross environmental vandalism and selling out to the Yankee dollar.As for Trump himself, I found his arrogance to be truly staggering. He seemed to think that he should be allowed to do whatever he wants regardless of the views of local people and without the delays of the planning system. Indeed, it is my understanding that one of the local landowners (a farmer in the centre of the proposed development) is refusing to sell to Trump! He showed no respect for or understanding of the environmental arguments against his plans and, in this regard, he revealed his true colours by the manner in which he jetted in aboard his private airliner and then drove away in huge 4x4 vehicle!

But the topic itself has exceeded 60 entries elsewhere, with very little noderatiom I'm glad to see.

I expect his speechwriter will get a rocket for not including his architect's name...

His architect, wasn't it? Rather shows how much attention he's paying to anyone except The Man Himself and his own views and desires.

So when Eddie Mair asks the Head of the Serious Fraud Office a question which is considerably better and more penetrating than the answer he is about to............................get.. the 'blipvert' could be inserted to fill the.............................'dead' airtime..

Greed will out.

A little apart from the others, perhaps .... and with a slightly smaller head. Perhaps MGL has inside knowledge of these matters.
