As they approve the tourist tax levy, today’s events in Brussels should show them exactly where the money should be spent, i.e. paying for the extra security measures that will be needed at Balearic airports. Nothing else. The Balearics main income is from the tourist industry, and (God forbid) if anything untoward happened at any of our airports - it would spell disaster. Tourists want to feel safe, if not, they will go elsewhere - so Palma Council, the spending of the Tourist Tax on all your fancy ideas, has been dealt a blow. It’s time for an urgent security re-think (before the main tourist season gets underway) to reassure all potential visitors that they are as safe as possible when visiting the Balearics. If not, be prepared to pay the price.
