Secure in its righteous rage, You've Been Trumped never stops for a second to seriously explore the economic points of view, even ones that might benefit the community.

Er, no: the local Aberdeen council investigation, as described by the man who ran the enquiry who appears in the film was negative, as was the film-maker?s own independent review of the Trump proposal carried out by the London School of Economics (no slouches in such matters).

It?s Trump and the Scottish Government in Edinburgh who have failed to show the true economic benefits to Scotland - which presumably don?t exist. If there were genuine benefits, the Trump PR machine were offered ample opportunity to respond.

You mistake the fact that those behind the scheme refused to participate for bias.

Oh, and as a journalist, were you not shocked to see a colleague dragged off in jand-cuffs and jailed for carrying out his job, having broken no laws?? Shame on you for not at least taking the authorities to task on that!
