Trump threatens to sue Scotland over wind farm plan

CNN -- It was Donald Trump's long-held dream. To build the best links golf course in the world in Scotland, but it is fast turning into a nightmare for the billionaire business tycoon.

After initial opposition to the project from environmental groups, Trump now has a green problem of his own, in the shape of an offshore wind farm.

With the Trump International Golf Links ready for action Trump has shelved plans for an adjoining hotel until a decision is made on the wind farm.

Blowing in the wind: Trump to ditch $1bn Scottish golf resort?

And he was in Scotland this week to accuse the government of luring him into his £1 billon (pound) project by telling him the offshore develop would never be built.

Yep, this must be the funniest event this week. Trump and the Scottish politicians collude (perhaps illegally) and promise Trump no wind farms near his golf course. Then, the politicians, being politicians, go ahead and build the wind farm. Then Trump takes them to court, but since there is no evidence of any such deal, the suit and Trump are tossed out on their cheater keasters.

Truly classic.

They'll probably squeak too. However...the Donald has a wee bit of my sympathy. I hate to look at the ugly things too. Those things do not make marketable and competative electricity.

Maybe it is just me, but what do I care what Trumpp wants to do about wind farms in Scotland? He has never had the interest of anyone but him in any decision I am aware of.

Donald Trump has a bunch of golf courses....

locally, the officials here are scared to death of him and his legal teams...

he usually gets his way .. and the high rollers get to bounce the little white balls around unfettered by the local peasants..

When I saw the headline, I thought the Donald was suffering a case of NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard).

HOWEVER, the wind farm would have a known, detrimental, impact on the golf course. If the assurances the wind farm would not be built are in writing, he should have a case.
