LETTER: Nobel Peace Prize for European Union is a joke

Share this article

On learning that the European Union had been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for “six decades of advancing peace in Europe”, my initial instinct was to check the date; sadly, it was not April 1st.

It beggars belief that an institution trousering £50m. a day from our economy while also eroding our sovereignty should be the recipient of such an award. Whatever next – King Herod to posthumously receive a prize for services to childcare?!

I am now off to William Hill to stick a fiver on Robert Mugabe for the 2013 prize!
