Extremists rob EU of its peace
Eric Goodyer states that the EU deserves the award of the Nobel Peace Prize for delivering the longest period of peace in European history ("Prize deserved", Mailbox, October 19).
What peace? The far right is gaining more support all over Europe; daily on TV news programmes we see rioting in Europe's capital cities, much of it racially motivated.
The Golden Dawn party in Greece attacks immigrants with apparent impunity, its leaders claim many of its party members are serving police officers. In Spain and Germany right wing parties are gaining support and it will get worse.
The Nobel Peace Prize has been mired in controversy for years and this latest risible, politically motivated award will cause even more controversy.

Eric seeks to further justify this prize by suggesting the £9 billion we give to the crooks in Brussels every year is a fraction of the cost of a nuclear bomb.
I haven't bought any nuclear bombs recently, but I would have thought you could pick up a half tidy piece of nuclear ordnance for that amount and you would not have to spend another £9 billion every 12 months, either.
