Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You are right of course. Westenthaler was considered too controversial to give him a high government office. I referred to him as "prototype" insofar as he resembles other FPOE/BZOE types such as the former Vice-Chancellor Riess-Passer, the current one Gorbach, the Finance Minister Grasser or really any of the large number of ministers the FPOE has had in the last years (they had an amazing turnover as one minister after another proved unable to do his job well).
