Shohei Otani? :)

-3 ( +4 / -7 )

Ron DeSantis

-11 ( +3 / -14 )

Sir David Attenborough (96 years).

3 ( +7 / -4 )

Anybody but Zelensky

-14 ( +7 / -21 )

Volodymyr /irony off/

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

The big King himself, King Charles! No. Seriously, Zelensky. Zelensky is proof that you can move a country with your mind.

3 ( +8 / -5 )

I have no idea, where there’s really 100% peace and who has made it possible there, if such a place should exist. Maybe an unknown leader of a small Micronesian island or so should be given the prize.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

Putin used thermobaric bombs. Not the making of a peacekeeper whose troops murdered and raped children and women dumping them in mass graves.

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

My guess is that it's going to go to a native Russian speaking midget who has a UK passport and owns a multi-million dollar villa in Florida. I remember the days when the prize used to go to people like Mother Teresa, Desmond Tutu or Nelson Mandela, people who put some elbow grease into helping the less well-off, or who fought against racism and imperialism and yet remained wise and conciliatory. They must be spinning in their graves, knowing that winners nowadays are those who blindly follow the west's agenda in stirring up trouble in the Global South. Barack Obama? For god's sake, gimme a break.

2 ( +5 / -3 )

Doctors Without Borders.

4 ( +4 / -0 )

I say no one. That would make a statement.

7 ( +7 / -0 )

The people of Ukraine.

1 ( +4 / -3 )

Nancy Pelosi or President Biden. Or perhaps President Obama again.

-4 ( +0 / -4 )

Nancy Pelosi or President Biden.

WTF have these two characters done for peace?

I think it should be awarded to Ukraine.

-2 ( +0 / -2 )

this is not my nomination, but there's a good chance Greta will get it..... or perhaps Naomi Osaka....

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Polish PM may be a good bet. He or she (not sure) opened borders to Ukraine refugees.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

This year's Nobel Peace Award goes to one individual and two organisations.

Alles Bialiatski a human rights advocate from Belarus along with the Russian human rights organisation Memorial and the Ukrainian human rights organisation the Center for Civil Liberties.
