“You cannot have freedom without a rule of law ... and if you don't have it, what you tend to get is corruption and that is death to freedom, it's death to truth, it's death to honour, it's death to democracy.”
Margaret Thatcher, 1 October 1996.

Congratulations to the
European Union (EU) on winning the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize for the advancement
of peace and reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe over six
decades. The cheering will be much louder if the EU could win the 2013 prize
for Economic Sciences.
