I think readers should be given a better insight through Ms Kay's reporting, ie: did the council approach the Balearic government for the purchase of this land? Were they refused? I would find this hard to understand as this government seems very aware of conservation. Then the state funds were made available by Jaume Matas, a minister in the Madrid government. Were these funds taken from Spanish taxation, or European Union grants? If the latter, after the recent exposure of misuse of European funds by the Balearic government when Sr Matas was president and have to be repaid by the new government (nice legacy!) and there was nearly a sanction made against the Balearics by the EU of suspension of further grants for some years, then special care should be taken when giving out such a large sum for seemingly such a small object.
The best reporting gives a complete picture, showing all aspects of a case, both sides of an issue, so readers can best assess/judge for themselves, and make an informed opinion. Hopefully the point has been made!
