By Michael Holden LONDON (Reuters) – Britain’s top court threw out a bid by Donald Trump to stop a wind farm being build near his luxury Scottish golf course, prompting the U.S. Republican presidential front runner to rebuke the Scottish nationalist government. A day after battling with rival candidates in a Republican national security debate, the business tycoon entered a war of words with lawmakers in his mother’s homeland after losing his fight to block the building of 11 offshore turbines near his multi-million dollar resort. In a statement, the Trump Organization denounced the Scottish government as “foolish, small minded and parochial”, while the Scottish National Party’s (SNP) foreign affairs spokesman Alex Salmond replied that Trump was “three times a loser”.
