The quote seems to be from the Pinnacle wiki page, but the article it cites as a source doesn't include the quote at all. It's likely made up.

I was told from a source that the foundation piles having no weight on them and the London clay could push them upwards. I guess they have to start fairly soon if this is a real issue.

Indeed. I dont usually quote wiki but i was propelled into it by pure desperation for any news. Perhaps my subconscious is to blame here... Depriving me of the common sense to question the plausibility of the source, and instead, in unwarranted excitability, re-posting was is most likely, bogus information. For this I apologise.

that was just a ridiculous comment, why advertise something that you claim to be something else on a website that has nothing to do with what you are advertising let alone the fact that the whole page is in Spanish, about getting Spanish students help in setting up a business. Just leave.

I would imagine his experience in Aberdeen would have made Trump a little unhappy to engage in any further UK projects...
