Published on : Thursday, August 10, 2017

Spanish Prime MinisterMariano Rajoy, Spanish Prime Minister has recently requested his fellow countrymen to be more warm and welcoming to the millions of vacationers pouring in the country each year.

 
Mr Rajoy urged this as few anti-tourist protest acts and airport disorder took place recently.

 
Barcelona and Majorca have been targeted by the left-wing anti-tourism groups this summer by attacking a bus and setting off smoke flares outside a local eating joint.

 
The protestors who are showing their rage have asserted that the tourism industry is actually damaging the cities with increasing rents and forcing out the young crowd.

 
In the meantime, airport officials claiming increase in pay threatens a three months strike that would usher travel nightmares for millions of Brits.

 
Mr Rajoy defined the anti-tourist demonstrators “radical extremists” and said: “I don’t know if we have to receive tourists with placards saying welcome Mr Tourist, but what we can’t do is kick those people who come here to spend money.

 
“That seems to me to be crazy.”

 
Mr Rajoy added by saying that Spain was the third biggest vacation spot in the world, adding: “Tourism today employs more than 13 per cent of people who work in Spain, with more than 2.5m Spanish people working in this sector.“I call for responsibility, good judgement and common sense because this is one of the sectors which is driving the Spanish economy and we must support it and look after it.”
