Nobel Peace Prize: Union européenne, douze points

Following the ludicrous decisions in 2007 to award the Nobel Peace Prize to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and in 2009 to Barack Obama only two weeks after taking office and while he conducted a war, many people may have started to feel the awards had been undermined by overt politicisation.

If anyone still harboured any doubts about the Nobel Prize having been made worthless by those awards, then the news today that the European Union has won the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize for having “contributed to the advancement of peace and reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe” should leave them in no doubt.

Like the Eurovision Song Contest, the Nobel Peace Prize has descended into farce. Something serious and meaningful has been corrupted by a desire to force political agendas into the faces of the population. No doubt the BBC will report this in glowing terms, as one would expect from an organisation that enjoys large amounts of our money channelled to it from the EU.

The Nobel Prize is of the elite’s most highly favoured, for the elite’s most highy favoured… pals in the establishment network conferring awards and plaudits on each other.

If you doubt that, perhaps it is worth noting Thorbjørn Jagland, head of the Nobel Peace Prize committee, is also Secretary General of the Council of Europe, with its stated aims ‘To achieve greater unity between its members for the purpose of safeguarding and realising the ideals and principles which are their common heritage and facilitating their economic and social progress.’ Clearly no conflict of interest there.

It is time people started treating the award with the same contempt its committee shows for reality. Richard North at EU Referendum is already doing that, being similarly dismissive of the news.

    Nobel Prizes – worthless
    Queen’s Police Medal – worthless

    Molesters – lauded.

    Is this the Savilisation of decency?

    it is, of course, a nonsense, as epitomised by the award to Barack Obama for “his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and co-operation between peoples”.

    His nomination had to have been submitted by 1st February of that year, which was less than 2 weeks after he had been inaugurated.

    If you needed any evidence of it’s lack of worth, for me, that was it.

    This award goes to show how many of the wealthy and elite are conspiring together to ensure the EU succeeds in trapping all its member nations into one European State, against the wishes of most ordinary voters

    AM, you are certainly correct about the BBC. Head over to their News website and look at some of the highest-rated comments. The level of ignorance about and the praise heaped on the EU is worrying to say the least.
