The majority of British people who go on holiday to Benidorm are very pro Brexit as are the majority of ex pats in Benidorm. Surely they know their holidays will become much more expensive due to Brexit and if it’s a no deal Brexit which is becoming an increasing certainty, they might not even get to Benidorm for their annual holiday.
A lot of Brits go to Benidorm to work in bars and cafes but after Brexit they will need Spanish work permits which likely to be scarce and only available to Brits who have qualifications and skills that Spain is in need of not for Cafe assistants and kitchen porters!
Life for ex pats will become much harder too.

So it’s like Turkeys voting for Xmas.

The only good thing is seeing the Spanish reclaim Benidorm from Brits why think it belongs to them.

Why do they support Brexit?

Do you have any evidence that these people support Brexit or are you just making assumptions?

Why would going to Spain become more expensive? This is just complete speculation.

Given that a very large amount of Brits that holiday in Benidorm are young then I'm not certain that your argument holds up.
You do also realise that without British tourists money then Benidorm would be a ghost town when the Spaniards, as you say, reclaim it.

It was in a travel and tourism magazine I read. Surprisingly British people who went on holiday to Italy, Austria and France tended to be a lot more pro-remain according to their survey. Over 70% of Brits visiting Austrian Tyrol were pro-remain.

Benidorm however came out at the most strongly pro-Brexit resort in Europe 92% of Brits in the resort identified themselves as brexiters, followed by Magaluf.
But interestingly Brits who visited the Spanish Pyrenees by contrast tended to be pro-remain by 73% in one resort.

I think the Spanish will be better off. There are plenty of other Europeans who can take the place of Brits, many Europeans who don’t go to Benidorm at present because of its reputation for drunkenness and hooliganism.
There are also a lot of rich Russians who are increasingly holidaying in Spain. They will bring a lot more money to the resort than Brits do and who are unlikely to get drunk and cause trouble, litter the place or put strain on police services and healthcare.

Why will leaving the European Union stop British people going on silly holidays in Spain? You’re mixing up things here that are completely independent of each other.

Have you ever seen Russians abroad?

So your argument is that the generally younger people that go to Spain on holiday are pro brexit, whilst the older and more affluent ones that go to Italy and France are more likely to vote remain? Someone had better inform the pollsters.

Have you read Tripadvisor reviews of hotels frequented by wealthy Russian tourists? They make drunken British hooligans look positively loveable.

The Russians are so much worse than the British. Louder, boozier and ruder.

The statistics show people who go to Benidorm are very pro Brexit, but it did not mention age. A lot of people in Benidorm are also older people. The place is full of them mobility scooters. The young people who visit Benidorm are most likely not to be people with a college or university standard of education tend to be Sun readers and tend to believe everything they read in the sun and thus support Brexit.

Hahaha of course, so all the younger people that go to Benidorm are Sun readers, any proof of that or are you just incredibly arrogant and prejudiced?

Arr yes, I can see the EU funded educational industry is doing such a brilliant job.

We must not listen to those prejudiced old people and of course the wrong type of young person.

Im only going off the stats.

I once went to Benidorm and that is literally what it is like. The Brits think they own the place and complain if there are too many Spanish.

Here is a classic!
https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/uknews...s-in-benidorm/

A lot of the visitors to the resort have no respect at all for the locals, how they dress and behave yet they are the first to complain about foreign people back in England and thus voted Brexit also largely based off what they read in the Sun. They probably think after Brexit they will get Benidorm all to themselves and the Spanish will be forced to leave.

In fact you don’t even need to visit Benidorm to see what it’s like. Just watch the TV series and you’ll see what we mean.
