Donald the Delusional now claims the ASA is in league with Alex Salmond

Mad billionaire Donald Trump has now accused the ASA (Advertising Standard Authority) – the UK’s independent regulator for advertising across all media – of banning one of his adverts “to protect Alex Salmond”.

Trump said: “The ASA is only trying to protect Alex Salmond for the disgraceful decision to release terrorist, al-Megrahi – the Lockerbie bomber freed for humanitarian reasons. He killed 270 people and was supposed to live one week but lived two years. This is the same mind that is destroying Scotland with industrial wind turbines.”

The ASA refuted the tycoon’s allegation. A spokeswoman said: “The ASA banned Trump International Golf Club Scotland’s ad because it made misleading claims about the impact of wind farms on Scottish tourism and contained a misleading image of wind turbines that couldn’t be proven to be representative of a proposed wind farm in Scotland.”

The advert, which featured a picture of a wind farm in California, stated: “Tourism will suffer and the beauty of your country is in jeopardy!

“This is the same mind that backed the release of terrorist al-Megrahi, “for humane reasons” — after he ruthlessly killed 270 people on Pan-Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie. Take action. write, demonstrate and protest [against] Alex Salmond.”

Mr Trump has already been criticised by a father who lost his daughter in the Lockerbie disaster.

Jim Swire, whose daughter Flora died in the bombing in December 1988, said the tragedy had “no place in a confrontation between an entrepreneur who is interested in making money in Scotland and the government”.

Speaking in December he said: “We all know what Trump’s interest is and this is obviously to further his entrepreneurial practice.

“Donald Trump’s attempt to blacken the name of the Scottish Government and convince people the Highlands will turn into one vast wind park has very little to do with Lockerbie. Other than the government has refused a proper investigation into the issues.

“The discussion and investigation [about Lockerbie] has no place in a confrontation between an entrepreneur who is interested in making money in Scotland and the government who failed to investigate the infinitely more important questions over why people were killed in 1988.”

It’s a pity Trump and his entourage, his golf courses, and his hotels can’t be run out of the country, or bulldozed into the North Sea, as he is beginning to make a smell, and it would be a pity of that smell got so bad that people were put off Scotland as a tourist destination, lest they become tainted by the deluded ravings of this madman.
