Check out Cinderella Bloggerfeller, an excellent website whose focus is Europe. They've been following the Baltasar Porcel saga, too, and have translations that are better than ours. A couple more notes about Porcel: 1) He's really ugly. 2) He's a Mallorcan. The stereotypical Mallorcan first name is Tomeu. Since most Mallorcans identify with Mallorca first and Spain and Madrid second, not Catalonia and Barcelona second, you could say that Mr. Porcel has sold out to the Catalans by taking their money and is thus a traitor to his people. You could even call him an "Uncle Tomeu".
