Far-right candidate Norbert Hofer has conceded defeat in the Austria’s presidential election. He had led over former Green Alexander van der Bellen by a wider margin, before the counting of absentee ballots.

    postal voting is a vehicle for cheating

    I’m not surprised. I read a comment online last night that the ‘powers that be’ would never allow Hofer to win… Looks like they were right.

    So, the result hinges on voters that don’t actually live in the new vibrant, multikulti Europe.

    A sensible person would demand a recount and proof of the eligibility of ever postal vote cast.

    Austrians hadn’t had enough PC madness? oh well, in 4 years there’ll be a clear majority. In the mean while, enjoy the gang rapes Austria!

    Show me a “democracy” where the results aren’t fixed and i’ll be surprised

    When governments lie and cheat about everything,

    why would you think that does’nt include “elections”
