A "trampled underfoot" primary sector

The prophecy of Pimentel, a down-to-earth former minister: "The revenge of the countryside will be terrible"

The former minister under Aznar who resigned to become a book publisher publishes a 'manifesto' against the terrible consequences, he says, that turning his back on the countryside will have. "Why is the primary sector trampled on and persecuted by the very society it feeds?" he asks, pointing to the political class and the "urbanite." He is also a cattle rancher and cultivates some dry land on the farm of a legendary bullfighter where he lives in Cordoba
