Wait, what? 
[Jörg] Haider died in a sudden car accident on October 11, less than two weeks after his party was boosted in a contentious national election. He was speeding, drunk, and had reportedly just seen Stefan Petzner, his political protégé and rumored lover, at a gay bar. Petzner, 27, was abruptly sacked as Haider's successor on Wednesday after a radio interview all but confirmed the two men were lovers.
Jörg Haider was a closeted bisexual who died after drinking in a gay bar, speeding home on a bottle and a half of vodka while texting his lover? I have to say, and I do mean this sort of in earnest: that is totally classy. What a way to throw your conservatie memory-builders into confusion. He did always set off my gaydar a little. But then, so does Tony Blair.

Btw, notice the use of the term "sudden car crash". As opposed, of course, to all the long-expected car crashes.
