NEWS: MSPs are demanding a zero tolerance approach to discrimination against gypsy travellers. The Equal Opportunities Committee says there needs to be action to sort out the appalling conditions they're living in. They want a national awareness campaign, along with a strategy across Scotland on how councils can help people more effectively. It follows a visit by MSPs to Aberdeen's official travellers site in Clinterty last month.
NEWS:Plans for a massive windfarm off the coast of Aberdeen have been approved this morning. The European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre will have eleven turbines - enough to provide energy for 49,000 homes. The Scottish Government hopes it'll create seven billion pounds for the economy, as well as close to 50,000 jobs in total. But there's been strong opposition from Donald Trump, who says the turbines will ruin the view from his golf resort at the Menie Estate.
NEWS UPDATE: statement from Donald Trump on the approval of the Aberdeen Bay Offshore Windfarm... “This was a purely political decision. As dictated by Alex Salmond, a man whose obsession with obsolete wind technology will destroy the magnificence and beauty of Scotland. Likewise, tourism, Scotland’s biggest industry, will be ruined. We will spend whatever monies are necessary to see to it that these huge and unsightly industrial wind turbines are never constructed. All over the world they are being abandoned, but in Scotland they are being built. We will put our future plans in Aberdeen on hold, as will many others, until this ridiculous proposal is defeated. Likewise, we will be bringing a lawsuit within the allocated period of time to stop what will definitely be the destruction of Aberdeen and Scotland itself.”
