Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A and F made the tactical decision to promise to maintain the status quo

Do you mean the status quo in immigration law in general, or the border controls? On the latter, while doing the Salon, I found this:

In terms of policy, the Social Democrats have announced they are to roll back the enhanced border checks policy - a concession made by the centre-right to the anti-immigrant People's Party - which has put Denmark on collision course with the European Commission and Germany.

Immigration policy in general. But it's sloganeering for the benefit of voters who would be drifting to the ugly party, more than a matter of conviction. So if they can roll back some of the more egregiously stupid rules and "blame" it on the EU (or expect that nobody will notice), then I don't expect them to actually feel bound by their election slogans.
