Dear Sir,

NEWSPAPERS here in England are predicting long delays of several hours at British Airports for travellers to Spain, because of Spain's new Advanced Passenger Information (API) system.

My family and I normally take several holidays in Majorca annually, but from now on we will choose Italy, and avoid un–necessary delays at the Airport.
Why are you seeking to destroy your Tourist industry?
Yours faithfully, John Jones

Dear Editor

It is not generally my policy to publicly comment on, or reply to correspondence regarding my views or decisions on various matters. However I do feel the somewhat derogatory letter published on behalf of the local line dancing troupe in a recent edition of the Daily B. reserves the right to a reply and be considered an exception to my normal rule. In the missive the group's representative voiced their, presumably collective opinion, that they had been unfairly treated by the council and organisers of Calvia's Europe day celebrations. Permit me to set the record straight. The responsibility of all final decisions regarding the exclusion or inclusion of the line dancers in the Europe day celebrations (including the one to allow them, during the event, a third dance instead of the two allotted), were mine and mine alone. Some days before the occasion I did receive an impassioned plea from a colleague in Calvia council offices (which I did, against my better judgement, actually succumb to), to reconsider their omittence, on the grounds that the group were 'so disappointed' and had been rehearsing 'so hard' for the event. (Something I knew was fairly questionable, as I am totally aware that the group meet and 'rehearse' on a regular basis anyway, and did indeed have another engagement that very day in Sa Coma.) But that was the nearest any one connected to the council got to influencing my final decision. I feel I must also protest at the totally uncalled for sarcastic comments and somewhat childish, derisive treatment I was subjected to by members of the group after they had completed their appearance.

Contrary to what they may have believed, this attitude did rather prove to me that my opinion of them was not as misconceived as I had briefly feared it may have been. I hope this clears up the matter once and for all and will not be entering into any further correspondence with this group of people. I do however expect a full apology for both their unacceptable rudeness and their badly misconceived recently published letter on this subject.

Yours Sincerely Leapy Lee, Santa Ponsa
