Saw this today..... I may be completely wrong.... but does that look like a Flap 2 landing? I used to work at CC on the 319 so i was quite used to the flap 3 Config, but that looks like a very shallow angle.... anyone else think it looks like it? Would it be a procedure for strong crosswinds?

That'a not a flap 2 landing - that's a flap 3 landing which is quite normal (it allegedly saves money over a flap full landing depending on which airline you work for!)
When flap 1 is selected on approach it only activates the slats on the leading edge of the wing, with no flap deployed (conversely when flap 1 is selected for takeoff, 10 degrees of flaps is automatically deployed too (called flap 1 f despite being the same lever selection in the cockpit)).
Flap 2 selection will apply 22 degrees of slat, and 15 degrees of flap
Flap 3 selection will apply an extra 5 degrees of flap, therefore 20 degrees.
Flap Full selection will apply 27 degrees of slat and 40 degrees of flap.
NB This only applies to the A319/320. The 321 has double slotted flaps to ensure the aircraft behaves the same way as the 319/320, and has different angles of flap as follows:
