Safe Mode: On
NOBEL’S PIECE OF NONSENSE

Saturday October 13,2012
By Nigel Farage


Ukip leader Nigel Farage

WHERE to start? The riots across the Southern countries of the EU? The Nazi flags greeting the German Chancellor in Athens? The stand-offs between fishing boats in the Channel?

The millions of lives blighted by the failed euro experiment? The rise of ugly national socialist parties which scar the body politic across the Continent? Fighting a war in the Horn of Africa?

It must be for these reasons that the Norwegian Nobel Committee has awarded the European Union the Peace prize.

Not even the author of The Thick Of It could have come up with that one. It would have been ruled out as too ludicrous, just unbelievable. But behind the rampant absurdity of this award lies a pernicious lie.

The claim is that the EU is all about peace, that it has kept peace on the Continental land mass which otherwise would have descended into war. Of course they neglect to mention the massive influence of Nato. Worse still it shows a complete lack of faith in the national democratic institutions created in the post war years by German and French politicians.

Germany and France haven’t gone to war with each other not because the EU or its predecessors exist but because of the German and French people. Oddly enough they have no intention of going to war.

When it comes to stopping others who may have had warlike intentions it was Nato that blocked the Communist threat from Moscow.

Of course that reliance on the billions of dollars spent by the US to keep us in Europe sleeping soundly in our beds has, by accident, had a hugely damaging effect.

It was a luxury to be lazy. Because we were not responsible for our defence, the countries of the EU have had the luxury of spending massive sums on the welfare state.

This has led directly to the bloated budgets that now bring such suffering to us all.

There is another sad aspect to this and that is the way that this highly politicised award undermines the awards that really matter.

Those to Sir John Gurdon and Shinya Yamanaka in medicine, Serge Haroche and David Wineland in physics and Mo Yan in literature. Their magnificent achievements are belittled.

One final thought, maybe they handed the prize to the EU, because they couldn’t wait. Nobel prizes cannot be awarded posthumously.

  • The elites are giving noble peace prizes to themselves, how pathetic. Remember yasser Arafat got one and he wanted the destruction of Jews and Israel. The whole thing is a joke. Vote UKIP!

  • The Nobel Peace Prize has NO value. They gave it to Mandela, a terrorist and a communist and they gave it to President Obama for achieving nothing (and the clown accepted it, reducing it's value further).

    Others include Yasser Arafat (the diminutive, primitive, hate-filled ignoramus).

    Al Gore, a big-time bullduster.
    Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) - more bulldusters.

    etc., etc.

    Here's the list:

  • The EU core is hopelessly rotten. Mediocrity is showered with award and empty accolade.

  • As a Norwegian i have only one thing to say: Remove the peace prize.
    Atleast bar former career politicians from having anything to do with it, give responsibility for the prize to a board consisting of members from the biggest humanitarian organizations. Fucking Torbjørn Jagland is a disgrace to the Norwegian people.

  • If the EU is so fantastic, why isn't Norway a member? After all, it is Norway that decide on the Nobel prize winners.
    Fucking backslapping clowns. I absolutely love Norway and its people but this Nobel shit has got to end now. It is a fucking joke.

  • I saw nigel farage on RT's capital account. Someone in my family said:"He has bad teeth". That was the only complaint. From what i get from him is that he wants the best of the ideologies. Kind of like a UK Ron Paul. He gets votes from old conservatives and old liberals alike.

  • More bullshit to validate an illegal body.

    The representatives of the EU are not elected by the people and have direct control over the elected members of the state's governments. Imagine here in the US when the North American Union happens. The NAU will have members appointed by the crooked politicians we elect and then our nation and states will be subservient to that NAU body.

    The people of Europe have ZERO input on their lives - from immigration, to military, to economics, they have zero c More..
