A prize joke — 31 Comments

    • I can't decide whether I am living in Animal Farm or 1984.  I have more than a suspicion that it's both.

  1. What a fucking joke.

    So who is going to get the $1.2 million prize?

    Merkel. To add to Germany's coffers?


    And I bet the Greeks and the Spanish think it's a joke as well.

    This definitely makes a complete mockery of the Nobel Peace Prize and downgrades it into practical oblivion.

    • Absolutely bang on the nail.  I can see a lot of articles like that appearing over the next day or two.

  2. The whole thing was funded on the proceeds of war anyway so to my mind that render's it worthless even before it's awarded

    • Heh!  Welcome Dougal.  Of course history tells us that Nobel created his prizes to salve his conscience.  I don't think he intended things to go in this direction though.

  3. So for the first time in history Europe is not at war within itself or causing a world war. And you get rewarded for it. For not having a war?  I am not going to rob a bank this afternoon. So I should get a reward? Perverse logic indeed. Still this is the place for that.

    • One thing that made me laugh out loud was Von Rumpy Pumpy's statement that "Europe got through two civil wars in the 20th century and we have established peace thanks to the European Union".  So the history books are all wrong then and there were no World Wars, only a couple of piffling Civil Wars?  And places like Japan, America and Russia weren't involved at all?  I think that statement alone shows how deluded and warped that man's mind is.

  4. The EU isn't eligible for the Nobel Peace prize.  They haven't killed enough people!  Yet!

  5. I hope they share the prize money out amongst us citizens. I intend to buy a box of matches and burn the wee EU flag I nicked somewhere thats lying in my garage

  6. Speaking of Al Gore when VP he was worth $2 million now with his green crusade which we all pay through the nose for he's worth $100 million. These top EU Politburo unelected creeps must look in the mirror every day and wonder 'how are we getting away with this'.


    • They do say that people get the politicians they deserve….


      There are a lot of thick-as-sh*t people out there.

      • Welcome Fruitbat!  People get the politicians they deserve when they elect them.  That mob in Brussels are a bunch of unelected career politicians.  The fact that they keep harping on about democracy is just a very sick joke.

    • That is one of the most nauseating things I have seen in a long time.  He is still on about the European Civil Wars!  And he has the gall to speak on my behalf and say that I am proud of the Nobel prize?  He is deluded and bordering on the insane.
