Daniel Cohn-Bendit credit rating for democracy

I see that Daniel Cohn-Bendit, the Green/EFA MEP has advocated a democracy credit ratings agency, where countries would be rated AAA, AAB &c according to how they behaved. This is good, because it is in the same direction as the GPEW/Global Greens Global Human Rights Index.

The latter proposal is that the UN should publish annually a league table sorting nations out according to their human rights performance. This will have a continuous, universal effect in improving the human rights performance of nations everywhere.

It's good to see ideas making progress in the global sea of cogitation.

Danny’s a bit of controversial figure, when I complained about the Pope’s visit and his protecting paedophile priest, I got claims the German Greens tried to legalise paedophilia, and what did Danny do in the kindergarten.

Ye, I know a bit about Danny. He is a bit of a splittist in French Green circles, though I have spared myself from going into the details. Maybe someone can fill us in.

What did he do in kindergarten?
