    Jorg, to me was a king among men and our relationship remains the single most important thing in the world. Jorg saved me from a life of drugs and prostitution and continued to care for me over a 15 year period, up until 2001. During this time he expressed is love for me in the most gentle and kind way and I will always be grateful for his encouragement and support.

    "...Between the woods and frozen lake,
    The darkest evening of the year.

    He gives his harness bells a shake,
    To ask if there is some mistake.
    The only other sound’s the sweep,
    Of easy wind and downy flake.

    The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
    But I have promises to keep,
    And miles to go before I sleep,
    And miles to go before I sleep."

    (Stopping by woods on a snowy evening)
    (Robert Frost
    1874 - 1963)

    As a student at St. Andrews University, I wrote a dissertation on the rise of Jörg Haider for my German M.A. I came to admire his courage and determination in taking on a corrupt and arrogant ruling establishment. His rise to prominence destroyed the cosy consensus which had prevailed on so many issues for so long. His electoral success forced the traditional parties, who for decades had dominated Austrian politics, finally to share power.

    Later, as a postgraduate student, I was lucky enough to meet Jörg Haider at a party conference in Vienna. Following our meeting, he went to the trouble of personally emailing me and wishing me all the best for the future.

    I believe that history will be kind to Jörg Haider, as that rare politician who stayed true to his principles and never lost the common touch. Whether he was dealing with a head of state or an ordinary citizen, he treated everyone as equals. To his voters and supporters, who are now mourning the loss of a truly great man, he was known simply as Jörg. He was a once-in-a-lifetime politician who will be sorely missed by all of us who knew and admired him.
