An Untimely death

As media reports come in regarding the tragic and untimely death of Joerg Haider, the leader of Austria's Alliance for the Future of Austria, I am sure that many will mourn the loss of an important politician and Influential voice from the European Right, whilst questioning the amazing coincidence of this death, following so closely on the heels of the most significant right wing gains in Austrian Politics since the end of World War II.

I recommend that members read my friend The Green Arrow's interesting take on this tragedy in in the post he made on the subject this morning. He has also posted this video of Haider.

I suspect that questions will continue to be asked about Haider's death for some while to come, but that convincing answers may be less easy to come by.
