Arrogant? Moi?

I don’t normally repeat things from newspapers in my blog but I had to share this one.

The background is that Donald Trump and associates were trying to build a golf resort in Scotland. They ran up against a Michael Forbes who looks like one of those old scotsmen carved out of Edinburgh granite. Mr Forbes not only refused to sell his land, he managed to convince the local council not to approve building a golf resort in a heritage area.

Good on you Mr Forbes but the really good bit is the reaction of George Sorial, a senior Trump lackey. Mr Sorial rejected claims that the Trump team had been “arrogant and patronising”. He said:

“”There’s a view we are arrogant. We are not arrogant. We set certain standards. It may be incomprehensible to smaller minds, but we have always set high standards. We presented them with a plan and hoped they could open their minds, but it was too much for them.”

Just as well they aren’t arrogant really. Otherwise they might have been forced to say something patronising.
