With Donald Trump in the news tonight, I am reminded of an article in Liberator 328 (that link will download a PDF: scroll down to pp. 28-9) from September 2008.
Written by former collective member Gina Ford, it tells how her husband Martin had a motion of no confidence in him as the Liberal Democrat chair of Aberdeenshire Council's Infrastructure Services Committee after he used his casting vote to turn down a planning application from Donald Trump.
That application was for 500 houses for sale, 950 holiday apartments, a 450 bed hotel and two championship golf courses and would cause serious damage to a site of special scientific interest.
When the motion was moved, the Lib Dem leader of the council, the provost and 14 other Lib Dem councillors abstained.
After Martin Ford had been removed, the planning application was called in by the SNP Scottish government, a public inquiry was held and the development was approved.
Something to remember as we Lib Dems are shocked by Trump or laugh at his travails.
