EU's Nobel prize

Sir, – I do not wish to seem ungrateful for my one five hundred millionth of a Nobel Prize; however, if entire continents can now win this once-prestigious award, might I suggest Antarctica (Breaking News, October 12th)? It has never invaded anyone, has never produced an empire, has never known slavery, has almost no poverty and, per capita, one of the highest standards of living in the world.

Indeed, almost the entirety of the population have third-level education; a true knowledge economy.

Pity about the weather. – Yours, etc,
