Nigel, maybe it is that Germany will be the biggest contributor of financial aid to Southern Europe and there is some pre-butt kissing happening here.

Am I to understand that German home owners are allowed to fly to Mallorca. I ask this as there were 10 or more flights coming from Germany today. If this is not the case what or who is on them. No flights from UK. If it is German home owners who is overseeing their quarantine. After all we have be in lockdown for 8 weeks and I would consider this as mud in the eye for everyone who has been though the ordeal here in Mallorca.
