#2 Nott is a prominent surgeon in the UK who counts former Prime Minister Tony Blair as an ex-patient and has volunteered as an emergency surgeon in warzones for 20 years.

His work has probably gone unnoticed by the Nobel committee.

#3 gone unnoticed by the Nobel committee.

If you are referring to the Nobel Peace Prize, he is probably disqualified on the grounds of having actually done something.

Steve nails it.

#5 Actually, there are a few Peace Prize winners who probably deserved it - even if they didn't actually promote international peace. Blessed Teresa of Calcutta (Mother Teresa) and Norman Borlaug spring to mind. Mother Teresa is well known. "All" Norman Borlaug did was to start the "Green Revolution", which only saved a BILLION lives.

#6 "which only saved a BILLION lives"

But they were all brown lives, Rambler, so that doesn't really count. /channelling lefties

The lefties think we need fewer people, not more. I'm surprised Borlaug got any award from EUropeans. :-(

#7 Rambler makes a good point. There *are* people like Norman Borlaug (1970) who actually did something to make the world a better place. Sadly, they have been overshadowed lately by a much larger list of villains and mooks: The EU, Obama, Gore, El Baradei, Carter, Anan, Arafat...
