1. Uhm … somebody ought to get Margrethe Vestager a style counsellor. Fast.
2. The Conservative – Social Liberal “alliance” is an interesting and rather surprising initiative. The last time we entered an election campaign with a government which was visibly coming apart in mid-air was in 1988, and back then Svend Auken unwittingly saved Poul Schlüter. (Needless to say, Schlüter was also the shrewdest political operator, Danish politics has seen in the last 50 years).
Obviously both parties could see an advantage in having C as a supporting party for an SD-SF (or an SD-SF-RV) government but there are risks. The absence of a serious government alternative or the risk that C gets too close to RV.
And: People say they like broad agreements, but do they like the lack of alternatives?
3. DF playing the immigrant card? Well, it has to. It is on the authoritarian-libertarian scale, the party manifests itself. Our friends, the pollsters, tell us that voters for some time as a whole have put less emphasis on immigration but DF could decide to try an mobilise its base.
