Scot­tish in­flu­ences There

The Press and Journal (Highlands & Islands) - - Opinion -

are many who would vo­cif­er­ously – even vi­o­lently – ob­ject to every­thing his boss stands for, and oth­ers would run a mile rather than take on any role in the ad­min­is­tra­tion of the new pres­i­dent of the United States. But­putting pol­i­tics aside forone­minute (if you can), isn’t it a feather in the cap of Aberdeen Univer­sity that the likely US am­bas­sador to theEUis an alumnus of that great seat of learn­ing? Whether it’s some­thing they would wish to brag about is an­other mat­ter en­tirely but it cer­tainly shows the level of in­flu­ence Scot­land – es­pe­cially the north-east – has on world af­fairs, par­tic­u­larly given that an Aberdeen­shire busi­ness­man is now pres­i­dent of the United States of Amer­ica.
