Two things that arise from this are the administration of Pollensa and the municipality’s demographics

As of the end of December, Pollensa’s municipal register had 17,177 people. Of these, 9,126 were living in Pollensa itself, 7,766 in Puerto Pollensa and 285 in Cala Sant Vicenç.

My main concern is that President " Bonaparte" Macron may object to the fact that the "Rostbiffs" have again acted in a manner that is too efficient by once again by ordering their supply too quickly.
Will the French fishermen blockade Palma Port in an attempt to disrupt our supply!!
