Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Two final points I thought about:
Firstly free University access is something of a prestige issue. SPÖ chancellor Gusenbauer, the next to last one, ultimately lost his job partly over campaigning for it and then signing up to tuition fees. And I think the conservatives insist on limiting access partly because they know it makes the socdem base livid. So the relative qiet in the party now doesn't portend well.

The second point: The security and immigration chapter being rolled into one has the effect of integration minister and chancellor candidate in waiting Sebastian Kurz not having to serve as the public face of any of the policies.
