Scotland for sale!
13 November 2012 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

After watching this last night, I have to say that I honestly could not believe what I was seeing.

Mr Trump and his sycophantic cohorts manage, it seems, to buy the local police force and government departments.

There seems no other explanation for the goings on in this film.

Trump has an ego. Just by chance I caught an old fight on TV recently (Tyson vs Spinks) and it took place at 'Trump Tower'. The crowd were told that 'two legends' are going to be introduced before the fight. First up, Mohammed Ali. Fair enough. Next...Donald Trump. The MC then gives an incredibly fawning speech on his behalf.

Trump's ego is that bad.

The film itself is not brilliantly made and the production values are below average, but for an insight into what real wealth can achieve (not in a good way), you won't find many better examples.

It does seem to 'end' a bit abruptly and could have done with another half hour to update us on what's happened since.

Still, a very good doc and one I heartily recommend.
