Hmm ...

Accidents do happen. But if you read this about an opposition leader in a third world country, what would you think ?

Austria's Haider dies in accident

Austrian far-right politician Joerg Haider has been killed in a road accident, police say.

Mr Haider suffered severe head and chest injuries after his car came off the road in Carinthia, his political base.

Police investigating the crash said he had been driving alone.

As I recall, there are two right-wing parties in Austria. I forget the name of the chap who runs the other one, but in his shoes I'd be tempted to invest in a driver and some security.
