The Donald Does Bohemian Rhapsody!

Niamh Anderson of the Daily Mail reveals the overnight UK sensation (1000 YouTube views!!) though I must say, I'll never look at Donald Trump's comb-over quite the same again. And that's saying a lot. (Thanks reader David for this.)

The woman behind the video, freelance writer Hazel Cameron, 52, said she was delighted with how it turned out. She said: ‘It took nearly two years to complete but we are thrilled with it.’

She came up with the idea in 2010, when she and her friends were talking about Trump’s plans. Miss Cameron said she ‘had to do something’ to raise awareness about the links course.

She said: ‘His actions are appalling. I’ve spent almost my whole life working in business and I know how difficult planning and environmental laws can be.

'So why was he able to come in and sweep them all away? We have hundreds of golf courses in Scotland and we don’t need another one – especially if it means that people will lose their homes.’

She emailed May asking for  permission to use the song and was surprised to receive a reply within four hours. May told her: ‘I hope you will be able to stop this nasty project.’

She's a bit late. Environmental vandalism has already been done to that dune and indeed the course opens in June (I think). The clubhouse and housing estate still have to be built though. However, Trump is currently blowing a lot of hot air (nothing new there) by threatening not to go ahead with the building project if the off-shore wind turbines are built although I think his reasons for not proceeding have more to do with a depressed market than a few wind turbines which don't (apparently) impinge on the view from the course as much as he claims.
I'll say it again: How is this man good for the game of golf? Glad to see people stand up to this bully although a bit late. Looks like greed won again.

Nice to see him confirm what we have always known: what a Prima Donald!
