The Minister of Consumer Alberto Garzón has unleashed another political storm by pointing out in the British newspaper The Guardian that Spain exports poor quality meat from battered animals.
Socialist Javier Lambán, president of Aragon, demanded, through Twitter, the immediate resignation of Garzón, by some "unfortunate and foolish statements" that are, in his opinion, "a direct aggression to an important part of the Aragonese economy, that strives to be competitive and sustainable. " For Lamban, "the one who does can not be a minister of Spain or one more day. It is in itself an insult to intelligence."
The president of Castilla y León, the popular Alfonso Fernández Mañueco, for his part, invited Garzón to "rectify or resign". The leader of the PP, Pablo Married, was also pronounced in the same sense.
It is the second time that the Solivian consumer minister to the livestock sector for his recommendations against the intake of meat. Garzón accuses this industry to be a ballast in the fight against climate change.
In addition to political criticism, those of the ranchers themselves did not miss either. The main agricultural organizations, both asaja and UPA, requested an immediate rectification by the minister or the dismissal of him.
The agrarian organization regretted that it is another chapter more than the "attitude of sectarianism" of Minister Garzón and does not understand how since the presidency of government it is possible to maintain a ministry that is "continually attacking an important sector as agroganadeadero and, so Both, to the interests of Spain ". In the opinion of him, the primary sector "needs support and non-demonization or continuous attacks" from the Government.
Likewise, the agrarian organization urged Sánchez to suppress the Ministry of Consumption, since it considers that "it is only dedicated to attacking the livestock sector."
The Minister of Agriculture, Luis Flat, already laushed against Garzón when he released a guide against carnivorous food. However, the most obvious disavower arrived from Boca del President Sánchez who assured, sarcastically, that he liked most was "a good entrecot to the point".
In his interview in The Guardian, the Minister of Consumer rejects abiding the position with Sánchez with respect to the subject and boasts to shake the controversy: "We knew that I was going to provoke controversy, but it was necessary (...) this is the first Once in Spain that a member of the government is able to say the same as scientists have been saying for a long time.
