World News – GB – Second Trump golf course approved for Aberdeenshire


Plans for a new 18-hole golf course were approved by Aberdeenshire Council on Friday, despite local objections

The course will be named MacLeod in honor of Trump’s Scottish mother, Mary Anne MacLeod, and will be built alongside the current course on her Menie estate

The area of ​​the land had already been marked in the local development plan for two 18-hole golf courses, a resort hotel (450 rooms) with convention center and spa, 36 golf villas and 950 vacation apartments in four blocks and up to 500 homes and community facilities

The course will share the golf house and related facilities currently serving the Menie course and provide 141 additional parking spaces

However, many locals opposed the demand, citing the loss of public space and the impact it would have on water supplies, private roads and neighboring estates.

Sam Lowit, a resident of Aberdeen, said: “It is clear that the existing underperforming development is not benefiting this area, with low attendance rates and continued financial losses

â ???? There is therefore no valid reason to extend or aggravate this situation and the refusal of this request is the only viable route for the local community in this caseâ ????

Sepa, the Scottish environmental protection agency, also opposed the request, saying the water management plan was inadequate and the environmental management plan was inappropriate

Former Prime Minister Gordon Brown has warned the UK is heading for a Brexit double cliff and economic collapse caused by the Covid-19 pandemic

M Brown, who is the oldest treasury chancellor in modern times, said the impending double whammy will cost jobs

He said Chancellor Rishi Sunak should introduce new measures to limit the impact of rising unemployment as his replacement for the expensive holiday program was « very limited »

Addressing a Welsh Labor Party event, Mr. Brown said: « I think we have two cliff edges coming up, if it is possible to cross two cliff edges at once.

« We have October 31 and the end of the leave program, then we have the end of the Brexit negotiations

M Brown continued: « There is not enough money available for the holidays. [M Sunak] seem very limited

« I think the Chancellor will have to return to the House of Commons very soon to update, revise and modify his plans, as they are simply not suited to today’s circumstances

« We congratulated him in March on his permission and I’m afraid he has proven that he is not doing enough to get us through this crisis, and unemployment will certainly rise very quickly. ‘he does not act »

M Brown was Prime Minister when a banking crisis hit the global economy in 2008 He said international cooperation was essential then, and now lacking

« The G20 is not operational and there is no feeling that there is a coordinated global strategy, » he said

« When you have a crisis like this – and it is a crisis worse than 2008 – you have to be very clear about the problem

“This is clearly a health problem that needs to be treated and I don’t understand why… Right from the start, when you have no vaccine, no cure and therefore no way to end the disease, you have to test, test and test

« This is what we should have done from the start, and the government stopped testing for the first few weeks and I don’t think we ever fully recovered »

« I don’t see this I see what happened is that the government reacted to the daily events, called a press conference and tackled the problem of yesterday, » he declared

« Everyone is suffering from the same virus, everyone is suffering from the same recession, everyone should know that you cannot cure this without each country having a cure for it, each country being able to eliminate the disease with an appropriate vaccine

« I just fear that the drive and energy to do this is not present in the international community at the moment and it is really very sad because we are facing the same problems »

Rangers won their first Old Firm derby of the season, beating Celtic 2-0 at Celtic Park

Connor Goldson scored both goals for Steven Gerrard’s side as Rangers opened up a four-point lead atop the Premiership table
