The British Advertising Standards Authority has banned an ad created by Donald Trump’s Scottish golf course  criticizing wind farms.
Trump built a high-end links in Balmedie, Scotland, and fears that the arrival of wind turbines nearby will spoil the view .
So he took out this ad, which uses a photo of California, not Scotland, and suggests that Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond sympathizes with the Libyan terrorists who brought down a Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie in 1988:
The ASA ruled that the Lockerbie reference was OK but the claim that tourism would suffer was unsubstantiated, and the ad must never run again.
(The ASA “bans” a lot of ads in the UK , often for frivolous reasons.)
