Humphry how can you say that Mallorca is covid free as it is not, your comments sound like you are working on behalf of the Mallorca government to promote tourism. You state that Mallorca is covid free and that most people incorrectly think that Mallorca is just Spain which is isn't, however when the interviewer asked you if you lived in Spain you answered yes that you did!? The UK government is trying to protect its citizens, this may be annoying cos it doesn't suit you but the sooner we all adhere to rules the sooner it will be better.

Very impassioned Humphrey. And rightly so. The UK ruling is confused, ignorant and arrogant. But I don’t think saying Mallorca is covid free is very helpful as it’s not. This island has some infections, like everywhere else. They very low and much lower than mainland Spain and the UK but claiming we are Covid free on live BBC?
