So, Obama has been awarded the Nobel Peace Price. The BBC coverage here is interesting insofar as even the BBC is forced to fess up that of the thousands of those who have contacted the BBC, 75% have expressed “surprise”. (Though “world leaders” welcome it) I’ll say. My small point is that the BBC makes reference to this award being surprising after his “less than a year in power” period. Erm, bit more than that. The final date for nominations for the Nobel Prize was a mere TWO WEEKS after Obama ascended to high office which means it took just 14 days to carry out “his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and co-operation between peoples”. Hope the BBC make that point clearly since it is pertinent to the quality of the decision. I also enjoy the way the BBC reports the Taliban perspective so ensuring that those of us who think him not worthy are cast into the same rhetorical camp as Islamist killers.
