*After the centre-left in Denmark has endorsed some of the most restrictive immigration and integration policies in Europe.
Notice how these critiques focus only on vote shares and never on policy influence
And here's the broader trend, which is also often conveniently ignored by such critiques that focus only on vote shares
Public policy positions of mainstream parties have moved decidedly rightwards since the 1980s (Wagner & Meyer)
"a clear time trend to the ‘right’ pole of the policy space. Over time, all party types have shifted towards the ‘authoritarian’ end of the policy scale. Moreover, there is little difference in the trends for centre-left and centre-right mainstream parties"
Will there be a counter-reaction if Greens & liberals continue rise? Maybe, we don't really know yet. But across EU is ample evidence to show how public policy regime on identity-cultural issues has tightened significantly. See the last chapter of our book for lots of examples
