Special Report: How the Campaign to Stop Ibiza Illegal Tourist Rentals Started With All Guns Blazing, and Ends Up as Weak as a Water Pistol

Ibiza News: Tax Agency Raid Finds Millions in Cash at Ushuaïa...

The clubbing sector may have always been one of the businesses most able to profit from Spain’s cultural acceptance of a black money white money system, but its reach and consequences spreads out far wider into all aspects of Spanish life. The question is not so much whether these particular businesses may be breaching tax evasion laws. The question is how few of Spain’s businesses are not.

The Art Of Noise: Eden Ibiza Soundsystem & Judgement Friday

You could go to any heavy metal gig and feel the vibrations of bass but this was so different. It is as if the music travels through you, as if your spine is a conductor. Then we went from audio Nirvana to a bunch of monkeys bashing dustbin lids. The ‘feeling’ of the noise went from tantric orgasm to dental extraction. Not only this, but she was seemingly determined to butcher as many classic anthems as possible within her allotted time.

"In a politician's mind however, an even greater consideration than the cost would be the political controversy of such a move. What are we looking at? Deportations? Prison? Or simply to put them through the system and let them back on the streets, in which case what have we achieved? Though I do not agree with it I think that, at a political level, ignoring the problem is the best of the available evils."

Editorial, Who Are The Pirates?

Let us face facts, over a decade of concerted effort has done nothing to stop the illegal taxi drivers. The reason for their existence is the demand for their service, and the absolute intransigence of Ibiza’s legal and licenced taxi drivers is the main reason that demand exists.

Ibizans in Glass houses ….

In comparison to goats, led screens, and now mosques, I have seen nothing of outcry over this issue. Perhaps that is because we are all guilty, we all defraud the state when opportunity to do so presents itself, because that is ’the Spanish way’.
