Tourists Go Home, Refugees Welcome: Majorca Locals Vent Fury at Brits

Locals in Majorca have lashed out over the influx of British holidaymakers with signs reading “Tourists Go Home, Refugees Welcome”.

Tourists in the Spanish resort have been branded “terrorists” by local residents, with a series of inflammatory slogans sprawled across the walls in the Old Town of Palma.

New figures reveal 15 million Brits will have visited Spain this summer, with the tourist capital of Majorca becoming so crowded that locals have branded the situation a ‘nightmare’.

With more Brits eschewing the Middle Eastern belt for ‘safe’ destinations  – it is believed five million fewer people visited Turkey, Egypt and Tunisia this year – countries such as Spain have been inundated with ‘Brits on tour’.

Margalida Ramis, 39, spokesman for ­environmental group GOB, told The Sun: “While some people are ­taking advantage of the tourism boom, many locals are not happy at the very sudden change to their home city.

“Equating tourists with terrorists is a ­symptom of the frustration caused by this very sudden change.

“Many of the local shops have closed down and been replaced by souvenir shops. This has also made the whole area seem artificial.

“The Old Town now is becoming like a theme park for tourists, like Disneyland, rather than the living city it once was.

“This is a real shame for the local people and there is a lot of anger.

    Ha ha taste of their own medicine! Have you ever been to Oxford city center in the summer with hoards of Spanish tourist/students rudely spitting on and blocking the pavements?

    Just pure fake news from this bogus outlet attempting to push a pro immigration agenda, it is just blatant propaganda, and yet they claim to be anti fake news, the absolute irony

        What evidence you idiot? Taking a twitter post from an unknown, unheard of user and passing it off as some sentiment of Majorca is pathetic. But of course you’re feeble-minded enough to swallow it whole since it plays to your self-hating sensibilities.

    Yeah, all angry about a huge increase in MONEYMAKING, would much rather be inundated by orthodox Islamic murder-cult rapefugees. Who is the Jack Peat liar who wrote this? I don’t believe it for a second.
