Donald Trump : A Local Hero?

Mr Trump responded by saying: "No-one has ever told me I don't know how to buy property before. I appreciate that." (BBC News)

This story really is a battle between beauty, nature and big bucks. For a full timeline, including the evoloution of the SNP government's (techincaly legitamate) involvement, read this. For more on the potential for environmental disaster read this comment. Take Care Y'All John
