Tom Lehrer declared in 1973 that satire had died when Kissinger was awarded the Nobel peace prize. Now it's just staged a second death with the award to the EU of the same honour.
NATO, capitalism and Pope John-Paul II are amongst the factors that truly earned the riches that the Nobel committee credits to the EU. Nor is the EU's lamentable failure in the former Yugoslavia remembered. And indeed within the not too distant future, war may return to Europe as a result of the EU's determination to create a Federal State.
Nobel peace prize? Not worth a pitcher of warm spit.
