Made in Austria

Jörg Haider, the superstar of Austrian far-right wing politics (which two weeks ago, has won a third of the seats in the parliament) died on Saturday in a car crash.

More surprising than this news was the press conference in which the PR of his party started crying like a baby, bursting out in emotional waterfalls, saying how much he loved Haider. And it couldn’t be any clearer than that – they were a couple. The rumours weren’t only rumours.

The fact that Austrian right wing politics is not saying so many things disgusts me even more than the things they are saying. A conservative party with a double life, which is everything but conservative, is even more disgusting than a conservative party with a conservative life.

And wouldn’t it be just brilliant to have an outed gay right wing party? This would make Austria finally truly unique at something.
