You know I'm completely in awe of the great Donald Trump. He must be one of the greatest architects and most stylish men around in our exciting world of property led town planning.
Personally I was completely embarrassed by the antics of Aberdeenshire Council in trying to refuse permission for his great world class golf development at Menie because of a few newts and toads hiding in the corner of a field. Thankfully our leader Alexander Salmond the Great stepped in to save the day though poor Donald still has to put up with the formality of a Public Inquiry which will hopefully see the opposition hung out to dry on the 18th hole.
If you're 59 years old and able to hang on to a lovely wife like Melania Knauss you must be really special. I lost my wife to a younger man only a few sad years ago so it's particularly poignant for me to see this great example of humanity, style and self confidence with such a beautiful and wholesome young wife of only 35 flagrant years. I can't help myself sometimes so I've included this lovely photograph of Donald, Melania and little baby Barron William Trump. Aren't they so great?
So good luck Donald with your development near Aberdeen. I wish I could come and play there but the best I can manage is the old overgrown pitch and putt course up the road. We are going to sell that off for a prestige development - our new civic amenity site. Maybe I should invite Donald over to talk about a new golf course - now there's an original idea!
