The Continuing Saga of Trumptown

According to The Donald. "I hardly know Alex Salmond, but what I know is that he's an amazing man. Alex Salmond and I have virtually never even talked about this job but I know for a fact that he - and anyone else who's representing Scotland, unless they're the enemy - wants billions of pounds to come into Aberdeenshire and Scotland."

He went on to say he had "great respect" for Mr Salmond and that they only talked about Scotland when they met last year."

Well for a start as far as I know the new development is still in Aberdeenshire and therefore the Trumptown developer is certainly telling no lie. Perhaps he thinks that once he buys the land then it will somehow become part of his empire? I continue to think that the real issue here is will it all work. I'm still perplexed whose going to buy these houses and flock to this course. It still seems to be a an argument about the wrong issues. But then again it's his money (or at least money his investors will put up) and so why should we worry?
