The newly created "Citizens' Assembly for Climate Protection" in Mallorca has detailed a series of radical proposals which would give local residents priority over visiting tourists on crowded beaches. In other words, local residents first, tourists second. During the summer month some picturesque island beaches become very overcrowded leading to complaints from local residents.

Jonathan MilburnOh, no worries. If the junior partners keep this up, they can kiss goodbye any chances of being reelected. Ready, fire, aim.
Hilarious , will they be fencing off the beaches and installing security gates to keep the dirty foreigners away.
Well this is another one of those POPULIST ideas which is meant to be Radical Aggressive and get under the skin of unaware normal hard working people who actually don't have time for discussing such ridiculous Ideas as this anyway this is the Modern Social Media world we live in and if Mallorca keeps spreading such Negative ideas around and people actually start to avoid coming to Mallorca well then the economic consequences will be very hard to deal with and then no one will be on the beach no one in the Hotels no one in the restaurants and the Airport can close .
It will give locals priority to do what? To jump in the water, or to lay a towel? Why are we always being lead by the least among us? But unfortunately the sheep will go along with it whatever the weather, this has been proven over the last 2 years.
As a local can I sell my place on the beach to some lucky tourist?
On one hand they want locals to have priority, on the other hand they want to penalise if flights are not full! As usually one hand does not what the other is doing. What's next rediculous restrictions they will think of? I guess it means people from the mainland Spain will also be in trouble to "access" the beaches.
Not sure how they think this will be enforced.
