Last Wednesday, the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom of great Britain and Northern Ireland issued a verdict on the case of billionaire Donald trump, a leading candidate for the US presidency from the Republican party, who demanded to prohibit the construction of wind power plant in the Spa town of Aberdeen in Eastern Scotland.
About it writes on Wednesday, December 16, the website of the TV channel ABC News.
Trump claimed that the turbine is 11 meters in height, the construction project which was approved by the Scottish government in 2013, spoils the view from he owns a Golf course.
The Supreme court unanimously sided with the defendants, finding no reason to freeze the construction. Earlier the same decision was reached by two lower courts.
Trump also said that the Scottish courts are not entitled to make decisions concerning the construction of power plants. He also argued that this construction reduces the quality of life of all inhabitants of Aberdeen, because it spoils the pastoral landscape, obscures a beautiful view of Aberdeen Bay and will lead to the outflow of tourists.
This view is not shared by the shotladnii energy Minister Fergus Ewing, who is convinced that new technologies implemented in the framework of this project, will reduce the cost of electricity and will contribute to the economic prosperity of the region.
Recall that earlier this month the scandalous statements of trump about Muslims sparked outrage not only American but also the British public, with the result that he lost his posts of messenger GlobalScot and an honorary degree awarded by Robert Gordon University.
In addition, many Britons signed an e-petition calling on Parliament to ban the odious billionaire entry into the United Kingdom – similar to trump’s proposal to ban Muslim entry into the United States.
However, the effect of these statements was twofold: this week, trump regained the title of leader of the presidential race, gaining 35% of votes of the Republicans and their supporters. This is evidenced by the results of a national survey conducted in the period from 8 th to 11th December by Ipsos commissioned news Agency Reuters.
The majority of respondents stated that they are not concerned about such radical statements magnate, only expressing concerns that these proposals will reduce the chances of trump to become the President. Only 29% of Republicans find odious statements of the applicant offensively, and 64% did not see anything wrong in them.
«He says what we all feel»– leads the publication the words of 57-year-old Donna Fi from Missouri, an employee of social services. Donna also believes that Muslims should not be allowed in the country, but fears that a political career with trump will hurt his «straightness». «He ought to be calm and to learn to filter their statements,» says this woman.
A different reaction to anti-Islamic rhetoric trump caused among Democrats, 72% of whom find it offensive. In General, this position is shared by 47% of voters.
