I cannot say I'm too shocked or even embarrassed. Like many others have pointed out, the Nobel Peace Prize has zero credibility anymore, if it ever had any in the first place.

Considering the head chairman is a vocal and fervent EU supporter I fear there's a great deal of truth to this. The idea that he might be using the committee to plug his own political agenda in order to sway public opinion obviously doesn't sit well with me.
We should either abolish the damn thing altogether or indeed hand it over to the Swedes, as their selections in the other categories suggest they'd do a better job at choosing more worthy laureates.
