Donald Trump won planning permission earlier this week for developments on land adjacent to his Menie Estate. He does not own any of this land but is trying to acquire it. His plans include asking Aberdeenshire Council to use their powers of compulsory purchase to force existing families out of their homes.
An admirable campaign, Tripping Up Trump, has been launched to stop this madness. Do have a look and sign the petition urging the Council to refuse to cow tow to this bully.
