Having read Mr Jardins letter regarding the tourist tax I have to say that I find it really deplorable at the way the Balearic government are going about treating the many visitors that come to the Islands. It is even more despicable the way they are going to be treating the many oaps who not only come from the United Kingdom but from all over the world. Many pensioners will have to think twice before booking now as I know that many come from my homeland (Scotland) to get away from the harsh winters that we have and not just for a week or two but for a few months which will amount to a fair amount of money that many can not afford. These people I know are now looking at other options. Even the Spanish oaps will have to fork out unless on a government sponsored holiday. This is a disgrace and I hope that you may allow me to air my disgust in your paper. I have spent the last 12yrs holidaying in Palmanova with my wife and daughter and will pay the tax and continue to do so under protest but to deal with pensioners in this way has really disgusted me.
We will return to Majorca and pay the tourist tax under protest
