    Most town councils in Scotland have at least one public course, with nominal green fees. There are literally thousands of golf clubs in a country with a population of five million.
    Balmedie, his more controversial course near Aberdeen, is even further from the central population belt. Apart from anything else, his personal notoriety keeps people away.

    That may be the final nail for this and other ventures.

    If he roots-out the Russian dirt that's infiltrated us & our democratic processes, I'll gladly vote for the guy given the chance. You should consider doing so, too.

    If I had my druthers, I'd keep his position open and make it permanent going forward. Serve notice on future candidates that we only want honest and clean individuals running our country, and if you're a crook, criminal, dirty, or sleazy - you need not apply!
