Default Nobel Peace Prize

The European Union has won this years gong according to Norwegian media sources.

The award comes with a €1.2m prize and is to be presented in Oslo later this year.

The decision hasn't gone down too well with Norwegians though who twice rejected membership stating that it erodes national sovereignty and feel it is inappropriate given how the Euro is struggling and austerity measures are unpopular in many nations

I wonder if the Germans will be prepared to share the money with Greece?

I'd throw the lot on Germany to win WWIII @ 8/1.

Well earned IMO - thousands of years of war and beligerence was all that united most of Europe before 1950. The gradual rise and success of the EU model has moved everyone on from that bigtime. It's put manners on the Russians too.

Whining about the Euro is a lot better than wholesale carnage every 20 years.

Bravo to the EU. Comhgairdeachas
