Corruption / Weather

Well, more on the Andratx story. Seems that Sr. Massot, the planning chief, operated his own property business as well. Now, why would he do that? Moreover, Interpol’s been brought in as there are connections with bank accounts in Switzerland and France. All starts to get a tad murky. Apparently, other Mallorcan municipalities are also under suspicion, though neither Pollensa nor Alcúdia is one of them.

More worries also about the image that all this gives. Despite my positive spin yesterday, there is a real issue here, not least if it turns out that people have bought properties on land that was not registered for building purposes. That is a worry, and it wouldn’t be the first time this has happened in Spain (which is why one needs to be ever so careful when buying in Spain).

And weather ... November was warmer than usual, by up to and over 3 degrees in certain places. Global warming, I’m telling you ... global warming.
