Donald Trump’s Adverts against Scottish Wind Farms are Banned

Donald Trump, as part of his on-going campaign against the Scottish governments plans to erect a wind farm off the coast of his £750m golf resort in Menie, Aberdeenshire, has released adverts to slander wind turbines in Scotland.

The Trump International Golf Club Scotland (TIGS) published ads in Dundee’s Courier and Aberdeen’s Press newspapers with the title, “Is this the future for Scotland?”

Trump Advert Against Scottish Wind

Numerous complaints were made claiming that Trump could not back up the claim that building wind farms would prove any threat to Scottish tourism, and the use of a photo taken of a Californian motorway provides a misleading representation of what may occur in Scotland.

The Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) said that its analysis had shown “little evidence of a negative effect and, over time, hostility to windfarms lessened and they became an accepted and even valued part of the scenery.

While a concentration of windfarms might have serious implications for a limited number of individual households, the impact of windfarms on Scottish tourism was very small. Because we had not received evidence that tourism would significantly suffer as a result of windfarms in Scotland we concluded that the claim had not been substantiated.”

The advert was deemed to be misleading, and therefore banned.
