No, it doesnt "violate" anything, its free speach !!

As long as he doesnt practice what he is talking, and I dont know where
such an "violation" would start. 

I would be interested inhowmuch Haider believes what he is talking.

Politicians talk a lot, and he is "a modern leader". Austria and Sport,
its part of the image of the country. There is the omnipresent fat CNN
guy, well, but the german correspondent looked very sporty too, his shirt.
This pseudo armani Miami Vice style, terrible, and I ask myself, if this
isnt tactics too. And everything in the funny Schoenbrunn etc world....

Am I the only one who knows "Wiener Brut" ?

A lot of interesting aspects, one is how "opinionmaking" works, mmmaybe.
