Why this has suddenly blown up again, I don’t know. A comment made by a member of the Balearic delegation to the World Travel Market in London back in November about Mallorca not wanting cheap tourism appears to be the pillar of a fresh round of stories in the red-top tabloids in the UK and they are sending out the wrong message. The matter has not been helped by parts of the Canary Islands wanting to “cap” the number of British visitors to ease saturation and, needless to say, bad behaviour. But the Balearics made it clear a couple of weeks ago that there are no plans to limit visitor numbers, whatever their nationality.

Well, that's a new spin for you, Humphrey. And one I agree with. With regards to cost of living for locals, yes, it's tough on many. But there's little evidence that it's unique to Mallorca (erm, have you looked at the UK lately?) or that it has anything to do with "quality over quantity". It appears to be just typical British tabloid deflection.
