Trump may be guilty of breaking ancient law

Well it appears that Donald Trump’s golf resort plans in the North East of Scotland have hit more controversy. This time it’s not over the conduct of his planning application, but to do with his coat of arms.

Trump is being investigated by the procurator fiscal to the Lyon Court to determine if he has broken laws passed in 1672 by the Old Scottish Parliament that require people to publicly register a Coat of Arms that they wish to use.

Trump has been using his Trump International Golf Link Scotland design, which bears the Trump family name below a spear-wielding fist and a shield, in marketing for the controversial resort.

The court charges about £900 to register a shield and more than £1,300 for the addition of a crest.

Not particularly serious, but amusing enough to be worthy of a mention on my blog.
