This video from England says about itself:

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.
