    And Trump's flagpoles continue to cause him problems - That's the third time he has had pole issues at his various courses:

    Of course, with an English-designed, Lincolnshire-turfed and Irish-built course, you might wonder why Trump actually wants to fly a Saltire but that's by-the-by.

    Of course its not his two back-pocket local DC Thomson titles that report this. Instead one goes all gushy about his afternoon teas!

    Better not get caught short on his dunes then:

    I wonder what sort of charge I'd be facing if I went around filming women "squatting"?

    Its being reported that Trump has Rupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall as his guests at Menie tonight.

    Never more have I wanted a thunderous storm hit that stretch of coast but its lovely tonight! :mad:

    And if you needed further proof that Trump's overblown claims about the power of golf in the North East economy were a complete crock of ordure. It was announced today that Carlton Rock's big golf redevlopment project for another established course just down the coast has been canned completely. No money in it, not happening etc - and this is for a place with one of the largest membership rosters in the area!

    He's also got permission to start construction of the "ballroom"/hotel extension that he's been threatening to build for some years now.

    Its in a totally different position to the original proposal/application and its current context is quite staggering.

    Trump should keep his mouth shut about breaches of planning conditions because if anything, he has clocked-up more than anyone else currently active in the area.

    Well, the day that Trump said would never happen has arrived:

    Offshore works underway for EOWDC - Vattenfall

    Work has now started on the EOWDC.

    More disturbingly though - I am kind of horrified to see that Trump managed to get this far without registering with the Information Commissioner:

    Trump golf resort in Scotland admits breach of data protection law

    It is IMO staggering that a firm as media-savvy as Trump managed to forget to do this and it does indeed leave all sort of questions needing answered about how they have handled themselves up to now. In fact, my feeling is that being unregistered may only really serve to stymie any investigation into how they Trump's lot have conducted themselves so far. :mad:

    Oh - and the dunes are fighting back. Seems that despite the unauthorised rock-walling and other creative interpretations of the planning conditions, they won't follow Trumps order to stay-put! :D

    Given the degree to which locals have been marginalised/ignored by every body who should be defending their interests, then yes that's a fair assumption.

    They have not stopped watching though..! ;)

    I love his measured grasp of perspective:

    “The people of Scotland will forever suffer! With the reckless installation of these monsters, you will single-handedly have done more damage to Scotland than virtually any event in Scottish history!”

    Offshore wind farms. More damaging than the Black Death, the Clearances, urban overcrowding, witch hysteria...

    IT was the attempt to view a copy that turned-up the fact that Trump had failed to register as a data user with the Information Commissioner. :mad:

    They claimed it was a simple oversight but it is frankly quite staggering that a company as media-savvy/connected as Trump should make this mistake. A less charitable mind might think that their neglecting to register served only to stymie any proper inquiry into the way they have conducted themselves digitally up to the date of registration. :(

    The only interesting thing to note is that Menie didn't qualify because it is classed as a golf course and not a hotel! Hmmm...!

    Sasaferrato Thank fuck it's not over.

    Onshore wind farms are an excrescence, and despite the minority SNP government's claim of self sustainability with renewables, are never likely to recoup the carbon emissions of their creation and installation.

    As I drove home from Irvine the other day, it was very clear that the government was talking shit as usual. I passed fifty turbines between Irvine and home on that cold cold day. Every one of them was at a a standstill. What everyone knows, except the fuckwits in government, is that on those cold days, there is little or no wind. At the time of maximum need, the turbines stand contemplating their navels.

    Don't worry. Battery farms like the one Tesla installed in S Australia will offset the on/off nature of production. Small-scale hydro for places in Scotland along with batteries would be brilliant. Lots of interconnected local networks instead of one big vulnerable one.

    Remember all the noise from Trump about how the EOWDC would never happen?


    That is the first foundation going-in, yesterday..!
