Approaching the end

Daniel Cohn-Bendit co-chair of the Greens in the European Parliament announces his retirement from politics.
Daniel Cohn-Bendit, co-chair of the Greens in the European Parliament, has announced that he will not seek re-election as a French MEP at next year's election. The three-term MEP announced his decision on Thursday (14 February) in a pamphlet titled “Pour supprimer les partis politiques!? Réflexions d'un apatride sans parti” (To get rid of political parties!? Reflections of a stateless person without party). Cohn-Bendit, one of the leaders of the 1968 student revolt in Paris, said that he would become a “real, accomplished” 68er on 4 April (he was born on 4 April 1945), and that this would be “the end of politics for me”.  We will believe it when it happens.
