Dear Sir,
I read with interest your article today on the proposed closure of terraces in Palma.
I presume that the terraces bring in income for the cafes and therefore tax revenue for the council along with the charge the council levy for use of the terrace.  
Also to be taken into account is the taxes payable by those who work on the terraces.
Jhardi herself explained that they were going to wait until next February before implementing the plans as they did not wish to cause loss of jobs, this somewhat begs the question ‘do jobs that dont exist next year due to policies implemented count as lost jobs?’
  Palma, indeed Majorca needs tourists to survive and the more they spend the better for us, more seats means more bums on seats which means higher turner and its associated benefits.  
I could rant on for ages but I’m too hot! It seems to me that Jhardi is waging a jihadi against terraces and thus the businesses of Mallorca and therefore those who live on the Island.
Typical Spanish politics when all said and done, if a business shows innovation and starts to succeed then it’s best  be crushed.
