Haider killed by his own drunkenness


This video from England says about itself:

Protesters campaign against the visit of far-right French politician Jean Marie Le Pen to the Midlands where he was invited by the British National Party. The BNP relocated their meeting as a result but the peace protesters followed. Organised by peace, synagogue, church and mosque groups with Unite Against Fascism.

From AFP news agency:

Austria’s Haider three times over drink limit in fatal crash

VIENNA – - Austrian far-right leader Joerg Haider was more than three times over the legal alcohol limit when he crashed his car and was killed at the weekend, his party said Wednesday.

“It is true that governor Joerg Haider had 1.8 grammes of alcohol in his blood at the time of the accident,” his successor as head of the Alliance for the Future of Austria, Stefan Petzner, told APA news agency.

The legal limit in Austria is 0.5 grammes of alcohol per litre of blood.

Haider, 58, was doing more than twice the 70 kilometre (43 mile) per hour speed limit when he crashed in the early hours of Saturday after leaving a night club in Carinthia province, prosecutors said.

So, even Haider’s fellow racist Petzner recognizes now implicitly that the conspiracy theories of Haider’s death supposedly being a plot by Muslims or others, are nonsense. Unfortunately, some Rightists are addicted to nonsense.

A wave of student protest is sweeping Austria. Students at the Fine Arts University in the capital, Vienna, began it by occupying their college after the principal announced fee increases and changes to course funding: here.
