Not so Nobel

• From Europe we looked on with great mirth as Kim Jong Il, the former leader of North Korea, claimed to have shot 11 holes in one in a single round of golf. One wonders, if the North Korean people had access to the news, how hard would they laugh at hearing that the EU had won the Nobel Prize for peace.

What with riots in the streets of Greece and Spain and Jose Manuel Barroso using his State of the Union address to propose the establishment of a European army, the EU is no more deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize than Kim Jong Il was of a spot on the PGA tour.
