Apparently You Get Points For Trying

The decision of the Norwegian Storting to award President Obama the Nobel Peace Prize bemuses me to say the least.


The man apparently got it for strengthening international institutions and promoting global nuclear disarmament. By this logic, FDR should have got one for setting up the UN and Reagan for ending the Cold War.


The word “premature” comes to mind. I really wish people would stop waving pom-poms for this guy before he actually achieves something.


PS Can someone brighten up Mile End tube station please?
