Spanish Government officials have confirmed that the country is ready to re-open its borders to tourists from all countries but with one strict condition, no gingers allowed.
Incidents of sun stroke and other heat related illnesses in Spanish holiday resorts have soared in recent years putting a huge strain on the country’s emergency services with figures showing that over 90% of victims are ginger. The move has already been condemned as racist by EU leaders but Spain’s Minister for Tourism Juan Fernandez has denied the accusation.
“Ginger is not a race and Spain will not single out any particular countries while enforcing the new legislation. Having said that our airport security staff will be paying close attention to flights coming in from Scotland and Ireland.”
Spain’s health service spends millions every year treating ginger tourists who seem to think they can sunbathe like normal people. Just before the lockdown came into effect, 21 year-old Irish ginger Thomas McCarthy – who had just landed in Malaga – was walking from his plane to the terminal building when without warning his head suddenly caught fire.
It appears that authorities there have finally had enough and Spanish Police operating in the country’s main tourist areas will soon be given orders to arrest gingers on sight.
Mister Fernandez also didn’t hold back when we asked him what advice he had for Irish gingers who may be thinking about ignoring the ban and travelling to Spain anyway.
“My advice is this. Just fuck off to Tayto Park and leave us alone.”
