I really like the title by EurActiv France: “Schengen : la France opportuniste“.
By introducing de facto border controls at its borders with Italy, France created a huge political turmoil. But the bad example is always contagious. When Denmark did something worse, announcing it would re-introduce border controls at all its borders, France appeared as the most shocked. Then Denmark explained that the controls were for merchandise only, the Commission made a proposal and ministers agreed to something not so clear, but which appears as a lesser evil, under the circumstances. Which France said was “more Europe, not less”.
Meaning this is how Europe functions, more or less…Georgi Gotev
