    Oh, no, this reminds me…

    April 1st is coming up.

    On April Fool’s Day, a lot of the writers here at IPR have bad joke contests.

    This is a warning for gullible folks like me. Probably your last warning, until the odd headlines appear…

    Habsburg descendant fights for Austrian presidency SABRINA GUILLARD
    March 29, 2010 – 1:29PM

    Ulrich Habsburg-Lothringen, imperial descendant, republican and Green party member, is fighting for his right to run for president — a job from which he is barred by Austria’s constitution.

    A nephew of Otto Habsburg, the eldest son of Austria’s last emperor, Ulrich Habsburg — he only uses the name Lothringen when signing documents — says the Austrian constitution does not afford equal rights to all citizens, ahead of presidential elections on April 25.

    Indeed, the law — which draws on texts that were adopted shortly after the fall of the empire and the creation of the Austrian Republic in 1918 — bans any descendant of the Habsburg dynasty or any other present or past ruling family from running for the country’s highest office.
